On Sunday, this public park was basically empty and the restrooms were locked, but the gates were still open. By Monday afternoon, the park was inhabited by many local children out for a spot with their parents. The restrooms were then open and two older gents who looked like they worked for the park were there to look over things. Hot-air balloons are launched in a field nearby, so we saw several float serenely overhead near twilight.
Tip: The pub called The Hop and Pole across the street from the park does accept children in its courtyard garden. It might suit to go for a drink or dinner after play. After all, the park is free and works up an appetite!
