Both routes start at the bandstand in the heart of the park, and explore the gardens within the park. There will be a long and short route to choose from, with the short route being wheelchair accessible. Routes and distances are subject to change. 

Please keep children with you and dogs on leads, as the route is next to open water.

How to get there
