Camellias and magnolias often grow to be huge in Guernsey, not least in the public gardens of Saumarez Park. Its exotic species were originally planted by a Guernsey diplomat who had served as the British Ambassador to Japan. A nature trail links the park with nearby Cobo Bay, making it a great destination for a picnic and a walk with the family. Saumarez Park is one of the island's main social venues and is centrally located in the parish of Castel. The largest public park in Guernsey, it is very popular with families, with many facilities for young and old, including The National Trust of Guernsey's Folk and Costume Museum, a cafe, a children's playground, large open grass lawns, and a duck pond.
Admission: Entry free of charge (except when certain events are held when there are charges for parking and entry).
Opening: The park is open all year round from dawn until dusk.
