“Beautiful”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 29, 2013

Wandered up to the Quarry during our first visit to Shrewsbury at the end of September. Remarkably for the time of year the Quarry was in full bloom - the display of flowers was fantastic and it was a lovely spot to take some sun and watch the world go by. An absolute gem.

“Beautiful place”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 23, 2013

Great place to walk the dog, take children, meet friends, or relax after a stressful day. The walk along the river, hidden garden in the middle of the quarry, please go and explore, you will be so surprised what you find, another place to walk round and sit and relax. Many visitors are unaware what the middle garden "dingle" holds. You have the option to call in for a quick drink at the pub along the river.

“Well worth a visit.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 12, 2013

We visited this park during the Shrewsbury Flower Show, which we would recommend, but the park itself is definitely worth a visit any time of the year.
It's location by the river, peaceful settings, don't forget to wander around the Dingle, there are paths which most should be able to negotiate. Take a picnic or just across the river there is a pub or several places in town.

“Nice park”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 6, 2013

Nice open space and children's park area by the river. Great for picnics or just a stroll. Has kids paddling pool for warmer days. Park on edge of town, so nice stroll in and out...
