an oasis of tranquility in the centre of town.

lovely are in the centre of Shrewsbury to get away from the hustle and bustle and relax by the river. Could spend all day there if it had been the summer.

Beautiful area of Shrewsbury by the river. Open spaces, the Dingle and a lovely place for a stroll before going into town for a coffee or lunch. Lovely to sit out in the summer and also their are lots of events going on such as the Flower show in August.

If all towns had a centre piece like this, I am sure there would be more for kids to do and less crime!?!? Lovely

As others have said, the Quarry is a lovely large area of grassland, bounded by the river, on the south side of the town, very near the historic St Chad's church.

This place is really beautiful and has been totally restored by volunteers. Their are interesting walks, tracks to a herb garden, bonsai garden and some really lovely flora and fauna. There is also a butterfly garden and lots more, too much to mention here. They also have abseiling down the quarry walls for the more adventurous.

Nestling in the oxbow curve of the Severn as it flows round Shrewsbury, the Quarry with design influences from Percy Thrower is always a delight. A great walkk just away from the busy town, the river and the Dingle with ducks and the summer flowers are also part of its attractions. As others have said, a visit to Shrewsbury must... More

This park is one of the most attractive and one of the best maintained in the three counties! A pleasure to walk around, particularly alongside the river in the summer.

It really does not matter what time of year you visit the quarry and especially the dingle, the planting of trees and shrubs is amazing and depending on the season the flower displays will dazzle you. A lovely tranquil place to vist and walk around.
