This beautiful park originally designed by Percy Thrower is a haven of tranquility. The walks through the avenues of trees are superb, with the backdrop of the river severn, and Shrewsbury School high above on the hill. The dingle is in the centre of the quarry and is beautifully kept with flowers, and small water features, a place to sit... More

I escorted a Group of 22 Seniors on a day long tour of Shropshire gardens. The first two were very different from each other and were thoroughly enjoyed. Then we came to the Dingle. The group were expecting to visit 'Municipal Gardens' and I knew their expectations were not high. As soon as we we entered through the east gate... More

This was a real treat - we wandered in in passing and found sweeping paths, a secret garden and a great walk along the river with fantastic views. A brilliant way to spend a sunny afternoon!

I want to return to visit this amazing space! The park is just beautiful. Such a pretty setting that is clearly looked after. The Dingle garden is a rainbow of colour and the play park has lots of activities that our 2 year old loved. Wish we could have spent more time here! It's a must if you're visiting.

With play areas for children, expansive fields, secret garden, paddling pool and river views, it's an excellent place for all the family to unwind. It's not far from the town centre, so offers a perfect escape from the hustle and bustle of the shopping area.

A lovely expanse of parkland area with mature trees and a delightful riverside walk by the river Severn. Bats are an added attraction at dusk as they flit and dance between the trees! Very tranquil and away from the hustle and bustle of the busy town with beautiful St. Chad's nearby. Also we were fortunate to visit The Dingle shortly... More
