Place looks a complete mess.... litter, cans, dogs mess. This place used to be so beautiful and nice to sit in now it is nothing more then an overgrown tip. Council should be ashamed

If you like a bit of grass and a few shrubs, you might enjoy the sunken garden. While away two minutes walking all the way around, or sit down for a while. Stand up again and sit somewhere else, the possibilities are endless!

When you first go there it seems unimpressive, but I walk my dogs there a lot and have seen lots of new plants, New remembrance benches and I love it. Very serene and, of course, is so near to the beautiful Westbrook Beach.

It's a lovely place to walk around. It is great for dog walks, strolls, and family picnics. The place is scenic and relaxing. It's great all year round.

The sunken gardens are exactly what it says on the tin. I suspect they are the result of a bomb crater from the second world war, but I could be wrong. In any case these small and tranquil gardens are a welcome oasis on the...More
