One of the most famous
parks within the city, it is a long area of woodland that curtains
the tumbling burn below. Wide paths run its length, with a variety
of bridges along the way.
It was laid out in Victorian
times by Lord Armstrong with trees, rhododendrons and flowering
shrubs. The south end of the park opens out into a wide grass
area, and there is a popular 'Pets Corner'.
A craft market is held
on Armstrong Bridge every Sunday.
