Went to look at the castle and came upon this park. The flowers were beautiful and there was gardeners spruceing it up. The castle was in the middle and next to a display with tanks and WW1 information.

Beautiful, large park with a friendly information center, ancient walls, and nice garden. There is a large playground for kids and it seems like an unofficial town center.
