Abbey Park has something for every taste. There's great places for children to play, for adults to walk or picnic, there's duck ponds, flower beds, a band stand, the oval for cricket, and the ruins of the abbey.

A lovely place to go for a peaceful walk. Great track to walk on or run on for exercise or a stroll through the park itself taking in the ruins and walking along the river. You can't beat the beauty or relaxing feeling.

Nice family time enjoyed ... the fun fair was an added bonus to fun at the park ... getting a parking space is a bit difficult
