This city centre park has been maintained to this day in its original Victorian layout, centred on a formal garden with plants providing spectacular colour from early spring to late Autumn.
Over 3.5 km of pathways are accessible for all users. A large lake fed by an artificial waterfall is home to ducks and other water fowl.
One of the more unusual aspects of the park is a garden for the blind with scented plants, which can withstand handling and are labelled in Braille. A number of sculptures are located throughout, and there is a children’s playground and a bandstand where lunchtime concerts are performed during the summer.
