I go into here for a quiet break. The dingle is a very nice place to take a break. The gardeners do a very good job in keeping the park nice. Plenty of seating as well as bins for your rubbish. Well worth going to.

Lovely park and outdoor pool. Lots of open space. A lovely walk along the river. Obviously it needs to be a nice day as it's outdoors. Would recommend for all ages. Not far from Shrewsbury town so access to lots of shops and pubs.

Wonderful place...not many parks as good as this one. Great atmosphere..visit Percy Thrower's garden, sit on a bench and drink in the surroundings. A perfect place for a walk along the river (Severn)....beautiful buildings all along the route. Ideal for a bicycle ride too. Love it..so will you!

We walked around the river path which leads into the Park and what a delightful park it is! They were busy erecting marquees ready for the flower show but this did not spoil our enjoyment. The Dingle is amazing I have never seen such beautiful flowers. There is a lovely kiddies play park, seating area, public toilets, Bandstand, etc.

I've known the Quarry over many years, but hadn't seen it for some 30+. During the amazing Flower Show it was at the peak of care and quality. Some visitors were actually running their hands over the grass to check it was real. If you're in the area, make sure you visit, and then promise yourself a trip to the... More

Visited during the flower show and what a beautiful laid out park. We really enjoyed the visit and it was a fitting setting for the show.

Sometimes I can't believe this place is in my back yard! I always walk through the quarry as it's just an amazing space and it's free!

Lovely quiet area in the centre of the town. Excellent display of flowers in the Dingle. During our visit they were preparing for the flower show but it did not detract from the park

Had a lovely walk along the river and ended up at Quarry park. Lovely green area although we couldn't enjoy the park because there was lots of work going on and fenced off areas for the flower show. Nice place to spend a few hours in.
