A very pleasant area to sit, with lots of benches, very near the embankment, car park and toilets. Great for picnics.

We sat in these gardens after a morning shopping. Could have been in the Mediterranean. Beautifully kept, credit to the council. Sat listening to the most amazing Spanish guitar music.

Lovely and quiet space to escape the crowds on a busy day. Gardens well tended and neat. Good place to have a rest and a snack. Some good buskers most days we were there.
