  • An excellent afternoon in a well kept and well designed park. From the winding path and stream that leads down into the main park, to the lake with its unique band stand, everything is well cared for. The main purpose of our visit was to see the brass band concert which is a regular Sunday afternoon feature during the summer months. Simply Brass did not disappoint. Lots of play areas for the kids, boat hire on the lake, a pleasant cafe and also a naval reenactment every Monday in the summer. Well worth a visit if you are in Scarborough
  • Brilliant park. Been coming here since I was a young child and now take my own. We had a wonderful time on the pedalos and they weren't expensive at £8 for a family of 4. The food at the cafe was lovely and again reasonably priced. There was a Punch and Judy show on and a parade as well. Such a lovely place.
