It's a small lake with swans boot and some canoes. The coffee shops are all around with more ice cream that you can handle. There is also the mini golf course and the historical museum.

Right next to bus stops. Nice place for a walk round with pedalos available on the pond and ducks and swans. Lots of benches for seating. Public toilets and a couple of cafés close by too. Right across the road from the beach and pier.
