The park is situated close to the town centre and is a large area of grass gently sloping down to the banks of the River Severn. Several events are held here including the famous Shrewsbury Flower Show. Situated in the park is the Dingle. This was created by that famous TV gardener, Percy Thrower. A large pool with an island... More

This is a beautiful park. We had great weather and lots of people using it to full advantage- either walkers, runners, cyclists, families. As a dog owner I loved that dogs could run free - no off putting signage like no dogs allowed, no ball games etc. It was exceptionally clean- no litter- and the gardens well kept and it... More

Don't rush your visit to Shrewsbury. Stop and sit a while. Find a bench, a boathouse verandah, or a grassy bank and take time to take it all in. This is a lovely place to be. Percy Thrower and the horticultural society have done the town proud. Lose yourself in the dingle, dangle your feet in the Severn or watch... More

What a perfect walk. It's a beautiful setting and the lawns and gardens are excellently kept. You could spend the whole afternoon here with your family with a picnic and a few games. It's great there!

Love this place not just the quarry but the whole surrounding area. We keep coming back here at least twice a year as there always seems to be something new to see plus the walk along the river and bridges seems to be endless and so beautiful.
