Visiting Tynwald National ParkPaved paths wind through grass and trees, making access through the park very easy. There is a viewing area offering access for the disabled, but the view is not very good from that location due to thickening of vegetation. A variety of ducks make their home in the small lake (pond) and are always happy for a bit of bread. There are benches about the park for the comfort of visitors and children will find the enclosed playground well worth a visit.
