Eastcliff Park

Eastcliff Park is a large park positioned on top of the cliffs above the sea and the railway line. It consists of three distinct parts, The Rowdens, a lawn area with large Rhododendrons, the Dell, a sub-tropical garden with three ponds, and Mules Park, open grassland. The park is an ideal place to relax with a level of tranquillity which can only be obtained by a seaside town.
