Even on a dark winter morning, a lovely place to wander around and admire the squirrels and autumn colours. Well kept children's play area and good views of the abbey from below.

When you need to unwind in a beautiful setting there is nothing better than taking a long walk through this park and to really enjoy the range of scenery.

I visited today with my daughter and dog. What a lovely park! It was a bright, beautiful Autumn day. We loved spotting the peacocks and the views of the three bridges. A gem of a park. The cafe was great too.
