The park is a lovely oasis in the center of town with beautiful plants throughout. There is also a small duck pond that had some baby ducks when we were there which delighted many kids watching them.

Nice park to sit and people watch. Across from the Ritz and main street. There was a craft fair there on the Saturday. Good quality and prices. Nice wee cafe in the gardens. Only downside is sometimes having smokers tables nearby.

This is a beatiful garden high up on a hill with a lovely view. You can bring your own picknick and rest among the large variety of plants.
