  • Rarely crowded and a nice relaxing atmosphere. The information boards are brilliant and very helpful. Would recommend even just to have a picnic in the grassy central area. Easy disabled access through the end of Forbury gardens or alternatively along the river.
  • This is the perfect place for a morning walk or take a deep breath during a busy day. It's a timeless place in the middle of Reading. Beautiful and calming. Few steps away from the town centre and central station.
