  • The Pavilion Gardens and the whole of Buxton park is an awesome space. Gorgeous stream containing ducks and geese. The park and is beautifully maintained. A miniature railway train runs round part of the lake (twice) at a very reasonable price. Autumn colours were amazing and the streams and rivers were flowing and flowing over the weirs and waterfalls. Beautiful sights and sounds. Lovely big children’s playground. Sound footpaths throughout to park area. Very accessible for all levels of mobility. Highly recommend
  • Large park with a pond filled with Canada Geese and a greenhouse. Shane it was raining heavily when we are there. Definitely worth a visit in the summer. Very nice park. The greenhouse is nice to walk through as well. Had a large coffee shop inside.
