Leigh Park Gardens
Leigh Park Gardens

I have included this short walk, because Leigh Park Gardens are often overlooked as a destination.  But the gardens, which used to surround Leigh Park House, are beautifully landscaped and maintained.

Only the terrace from the old house remains.  The house was used during the war for the Mines Department, but was demolished after the war and its lands used to build the Leigh Park housing estate.

The gardens are great for people of any age, and I can tell you from experience that childen love running around its hills and secret islands.  It is a fun visit rather than a serious walk, but well worth the effort.
