This is a lovely park with something for everyone. There's tennis courts, a bandstand, swings and a dog area. Bands play on Sundays. It is really neat and tidy with fantastic flower beds. Well done to the council!!

Best park for miles around. Safe play area for under 12's and a well stocked take away. Small car park but plenty of parking in Malmesbury Road.

Nice place for an afternoon with the kids. The splash pad is great when the weather is nice, and there is plenty of space for running around. Parking isn't great, but you can usually find a space on the streets.

There is a small free car park at the entrance to the park, but it gets full quickly on busy days. Otherwise off street parking with a short walk
