- Brighton Park is a place for a quiet stroll to to take the air, a seat in the sun to read the papers and somewhere to chat to friends. Surrounded by a privet hedge, it has a fine shrubbery of varieties of holly, cotoneaster, hawthorn, flowering current and other shrubs. There is also peripheral displays of roses and a spring bulb show.
