Eastcliff Park is a large historically significant local green space sitting on top of the cliffs above the sea and the railway line. It consists of three distinct parts, The Rowdens, a lawned area overlooked by the beautiful Rowdens House, the Dell, a sub-tropical garden with three ponds, and Mules Park, open grassland. The Park offers all its users a relaxing recreational environment.
The blue sky bounds the ocean, the white clouds scud between.
A flock of gulls are wheeling and wailing round my seat;
Above my head the heaven, the sea beneath my feet.
Robert Bridges 1930

Bluebell Time by Enid Blyton
Oh, bluebell time is here again And every little elf
Has picked a tiny bell to make A bonnet for herself!
And all the brownies pick them too To ring them as they go,
Jingle-jingle, hear the tune, The prettiest one they know!
I'd like to creep into the wood And see the bonnets blue,
And hear the bluebells ringing loud, I wish I could - don't you?
And you can as they are in full bloom now on the track through the woods above the top pond in the Dell
