A great little spot that is perfect for a getaway from the hussle and bustle of city life. It’s open and bright in the day time, yet quiet in the late evenings but still busy enough to feel safe. It has a beautiful water feature which is runs down to an open water hole. I’d definitely recommend bringing lunch or even a quiet smoke with friends here to take in the scenery.

Lovely place to be when you need to take a break from shopping in the town. Take your food and drinks with you and relax. Nice water feature around one half of the gardens, play facilities for children, with the Football Museum 30 seconds away.
