Herbert Park (named after Sidney Herbert 1810-1861) is thirty-two acres in size and is divided in two by Herbert Park Road.
A full circuit of the park's perimeter is almost exactly one mile, a fact useful to runners and walkers to measure their distances.
The larger half, to the south, is bounded by the River Dodder, houses, and includes soccer pitches, formal gardens, and a large duck pond as well as an older public children's playground. The northern half is home to the newly refurbished children's playground, tennis courts, Herbert Park Bowling Club's bowling green.
The park's pond is an excellent location for breeding of carp.

If it’s your first time out and you can’t spot anyone at 2pm, just choose something to sketch and get stuck in. Keep your eyes open for anyone carrying a sketchbook and say hello. It's a friendly crowd who you’ll get to know over a drink from 4pm. Don't worry if you're late, most of us usually are! You need to bring your own paper and pens/pencils etc. A bunch of sketchers will magically appear. 
In Lolly and Cook a café with in the Herbert park
