This park is amazing, it's very big & has several sections & fields to it, it has a play area with lots of rides for little kids, it's got a duck pond with swans in too atm. it's got tennis courts & a permanent ping pong table, down the far end its got exercise machines of various types more for fun than anything else, it's got a Brook running through it & the creme de la creme is the water feature for kids, jets of water in a purpose built area, needless to say that's very popular. The groundskeers do an amazing job on the upkeep of the park. they've had new toilet blocks two years ago, there is a cafe down the far end of the park & also ice cream van in the warm weather on an adjacent road. I live a few streets away but my family come & use it from as far as Stroud, Glos. Best Park I've been to anywhere in my opinion, just be warned get there early on hot days if wanting a good spot on the grass near the water feature! Ps don't tell anyone else about this park! 😂

This park has something for everyone, from peaceful early morning walks to family fun and picnics. The park is amazingly clean and well maintained and has some great points of interest including the Battle of Gheluvelt memorial sculpture and the beautiful bandstand. The children's playground is well equipped and always busy whenever I have visited the park. This park is one of my favourite places to walk!

I used to walk through this park every morning and back to and from work. It is a very beautifully kept park. With nice little areas, near the band stand and small lake. You can carry on from the well kept park through a nature reserve, where the plants are encouraged to grow wild, and then onto the racecourse, following the River Severn into Worcester City. It is a very pleasant walk, Summer and Winter. It is a very easy walk, and there are several places you can stop off along the way, if you want to just amble along.

This is a lovely park with lots for the kids to do. If you knew what this park used to be like then this is a 100% improvement. Great play area for kids with a variety of swings, climbing activities etc and it's good and it's split for little one and bigger kids.
The walk over to the splash pad take you past the large pond with comes off the brook, with lots of ducks and often swans which you can feed.
The splash pad is fantastic, and kids of all ages can enjoy it, as I said compared to the awful pool that used to be there it's brilliant. The down side is the area around it to sit on is mainly on a sloped bank, not ideal if you have prams/pushchairs. Also the only toilets are on the other side of the park by the play area, not great if you have little ones.
The toilets are not great, now the park has been refurbished these need addressing. I get the feeling some not so great characters hang round there & they are very small again not ideal if your on your own with a pram & toddler! Not sure when you get the key for the disabled from.
There is not much parking nearby but you do get access to the Pump house cafe which is very nice.
Overall great park just need some areas addressing.

Located in a residential district it does get VERY busy when the sun in shining, for me that spoils what would otherwise be a pleasant place for a short walk.

The main part of the park is now open after the devastating floods. Only the part nearest the river is under water and the pathway by the side of the brook is still closed. Thanks must go to the Council workmen who have worked hard to get this lovely attration open again. The children's play area is now available for use and the brave plants have withstood a lot of the floods and are doing their best to break into flower.

Visited this park in Worcester however as beautiful as it is it was flooded and therefore closed. The park is definitely worth a visit when not under water.
Still took some pictures and it still looks lovely.
