At this time of year the garden was spectacularly colourful and well tended - a credit to the head gardener and his staff. This is a beautifully peaceful area which leads from the town to the riverside.

It offers a brand new children's play area and paddling pool and the main leisure centre is also there. The quarry also offers a lovely walk along the river for... More

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. The Dingle is superbly kept with lots of glorious plants, flowerbeds and a pond with a fountain - take your camera! There is also a refurbished contained play area... More

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.
