Great place to relax, listen to birds or sit under the willow tree. Beautifull flowers :) a lot to explore. There is a cafe, so you can enjoy a hot drink.

Had a walk around this park and it has a couple of brilliant surprises. The aviary and the Chinese Bell Tower with its 4 cannons. The fabulous flower beds bursting with colour.

From the High School tram stop just a short walk to the Arboretum with so many different trees and a well laid out formal flower garden. At the bottom of the hill is a duck pond and bird house and a newly opened cafe.

Yes, it’s ideal for a picnic. Depending on your mum’s mobility it is walkable from the city centre; probably 20 to 30 minutes.
