Don't be misled by its name. It is an attractive park, close to the town centre with a particularly beautiful part called The Dingle, right in the centre of the Quarry.

This was a memorable highlight of the awesomeness that is Shrewsbury..this gorgeous town simply... More

I took two American visitors with me to visit the Quarry and the Dingle, and I could genuinely feel proud of the beauty and extent of the town park.

Visited Shrewsbury for the day and spent a couple of hours here! Really stunning park, so much to offer for varying ages. The Dingle was stunning and great walks to be had along the river.
