If you have some time then pay this little park a visit. Beautiful, 10 minutes away from beach easy walk. Lots of shadow, so you don'T get sun burned.

More parkland with flower beds and lawns than a botanical garden, but there are some interesting plantings with labels and a glasshouse. For start of spring there were colourful annuals like poppies. Nice place to stroll, take in fresh air and see some nature in...More

Visited a few days ago, the park was quite dull. It’s probably the effect of winter but the park looked like a forlorn place
