A fine public park, designed by Thomas Mawson in 1926. The central flower garden and pergola is a good example of Mawson's Arts and Crafts style - but suffers from vandalism. It steps down to a lakeside areas with a neo-classical bandstand. The lake is large and graceful, in the Brownian tradition. But the geometrical bowling greens have a fascist characater.

    Such an important and beautiful piece of landscape, created by such a famous and influential garden designer. So many elements to explore. A well kept, busy park with lots going on, events, sports, award winning adventure playground, recreation and a fine Art Deco cafe. Our professional, accredited tour guide opened our eyes to this Grade II listed historic park.

    Though I have never visited this park, it's worth knowing that it was designed by the firm of Thomas H Mawson and Sons, and not by 'THM' himself. In reality the bulk of the design was down to his son Edward Prentice Mawson and is arguably one of his best designs and one that fits well into the tradition established by his father.
