What People Say
About Paradise Park

Wow, what a wonderful place Paradise Park is!. Having been past this place so many times over the years without venturing in we finally went there last week. Cant speak highly enough, this is like the "Harrods" of the garden centre world, not just everything you would want for your garden but with attractions for the kids and a restaurant that is not only good value is immaculate well laid out and with extremely pleasant staff (which is a bit of a luxury these days) its brilliant and we will be back.
