We passed through Andrews East Park on a midweek afternoon with our daughter and grandchildren whilst making our way from our hotel to the SeaCity museum in Southampton and specifically to visit the Titanic Engineer Officers Memorial which may be found here.
The park is a lovely oasis of calm in an otherwise busy city with laid out pathways and benches at which to rest, tall trees, bushes and shrubs help deaden the traffic noise and encourage bird song and it is hard to believe that you are so close to the city centre. Having brought a packed lunch for the children, we picnicked in the park before continuing on.

Spent a few minutes walking around St Andrew’s Park identifying the monuments around it as well as visiting Watts Park. Especially liked the draped wisteria throughout a small passage one can walk through.

Andrew's Park (also known as East Park) is the prettiest park in Southampton and lies between Watts Park to the west and Houndwell Park to the south in Southampton's 'Central Parks' (see separate reviews).
The park is named after Richard Andrews (1796-1859) who was Mayor of Southampton 5 times and there is a statue of him here. Also located in the park is a mini-golf course, a beautiful wooden wisteria arbour and a tropical rockery with plants and exotic trees planted in the Victorian era. There used to be an exotic bird avery here to but this was demolished a few decades ago due to modern health regulations. Best of all is The Titanic Engineers Officers Memorial (see reviews) which is inset on Above Bar Street. The monument still gets floral wreaths and is lit up. The park is used as a walk way to get from the city centre to the Solent University or Jury's Inn (hotel). I would not advise walking through this park alone at night.

Between the university's this nice park has lots of various types of flowers, bushes and threes. It also has some memorials, as the Titanic Enineer Officers memorial is in the north west part of the park.

The quickest way to walk from one end of the town to the other is in a direct line from Mayflower Park or the docks, up the QE2 mile, High St and Above Bar. But a prettier way, in an oasis of green, is to walk through 5 more of Southampton's many parks that are linked by wide roads. See also Hoglands Park, Houndwell Park, Palmerston Park... Then we come to this one East Park, or formerly known as Andrew's Park, which is the prettiest and biggest in the town centre; before going on to Watts (West) Park, or visa-versa if you are heading south to the water.
Andrew's Park is named after Richard Andrews (1796-1865) who was Mayor of Southampton 5 times. It is famous for its Titanic Engineers Memorial (see listing) and its tropical rockery that was enjoyed so much by the Victorians (it used to have an exotic bird avery too until the early 1970s).
It has a beautiful wisteria arbour. Weeping willows sway beneath tall horse-chestnut trees.

Andrews East Park is just one of five very nice parks in the middle of Southampton. Others are Hoglands, Houndwell, Palmerston, Andrews East, and West (Watts) Park. You can walk through these all without knowing you're leaving one and entering another. That's what makes them so great - it's really one big park with lots of walking paths and grass areas, and a perfect recluse from the busy city center and traffic and people. VERY nice park system for walking and jogging as well.

Andrews East Park is fairly big. Pathways are wide and well lit. Maintenance clearly works, no litter in the park. Nice relaxing place to have a stroll in Southampton.
