We went last year just after the flower show and it was beautiful. The shrubs and flowerbeds are a dream to walk around and all just near the river seven.

The river Severn runs through it, the Dingle is at the heart of it. Good for walks along the river, runs and playing with the children on the vast grassed areas.

I visited the Quarry earlier today and have to say that it's absolutely beautiful. The Gardens are well kept and it provides an abundance of activities for families enjoying the summer holidays.

Great for everyone, walking, scooting, cycling and playing all with great views. Take a look in the Dingle for some garden inspiration and to feed the ducks.

Had a wonderful time exploring the River with Shrewsbury Canoe Hire based in the Quarry. Really worth a look at Shrewsbury and this beautiful park from another angle. Reasonable short hires from a very cheerful chap! Check it out by the playpark and port hill bridge.

Love visiting the Quarry. Very clean area. New refurbished park and water area for kids. Lovely walk along the river. Picnics to be had. Pub for a beer over the bridge. Public loos - altho they could do with a refurb too! But all in all nice place to be.

This is a really nice park with lots of open space for games, and a beautiful riverside walk. There is a great children's playground with a small coffee bar next to it.
