I had some higher expectation given the name of the park, I thought it was more than just a park named after the Mayflower. But nope, it was apart named just after the Mayflower, a bit dodgy looking I thought, walked in and straight out.

It's a good park for watching container ships and cruise liners. There is a cafe, toilets and children's play area but it's not a pretty park,just a green with a Southampton water view.

This is a lovely park where you can get to watch all the Cruise ships and Container vessels coming in and out of the Port of Southampton. If you are on a ship you can also get a great view of the park.

This is the place to walk and watch the cruise ships arrive or leave. There is little else there except I did see an ice cream van which seemed popular even on a cool and windy evening.

Popped here for a walk after dinner but was clearly hosting the 'finer' beings of society by sunset, having seen some suspicious behaviour and asked by dodgy characters for change more than once! Ice cream van there after dark, make of that what you will......More

Mayflower Park because it's in front of the spot where the Mayflower with the Pilgrim Fathers set sail (yes it did, it called into Plymouth for repairs). A large expanse of grass where people picnic, sunbathe etc. with a road going round it - one...More

There is a basketball court in one corner and a small childrens play park and kiosk in the other and that's pretty much it. There is also an ice cream van at the waterfront most of the time. You can walk along the water's edge,...More
