Proper Victorian town park with lots of appeal in the 21st Century. It has all the things you want from a town park - cafe, bandstand (with live music some weekends), flowerbeds, a museum, and lake with ducks. And lots of families out enjoying themselves...More

I was brought up in Northampton and have been to this park hundreds of times in the past twenty years. It's not kept up to a world class standard but the facilities and activities are good and accessible to all. Large green spaces to use...More
