Interesting park to wander through. Not flat and open but little areas to explore around each corner.

Always great to walk through the park on a sunny day and the views are stunning. The area is always very well maintained and the centre garden is always a talking piece.

I always enjoy a walk through this old style park with magnificent coastal views. Stop at the old rotunda to bring back memories of childhood visits to this green space.

Close to the City centre is the beautiful King Edward Park. It's a lovely place to have a picnic or just go for a walk. The Bogey Hole is a great place to swim.
