A nice little park, not huge but well maintained with some nice flower borders at one end. There is a band stand and a cafe which wasn’t open during our recent visit and may be permanently closed due to the a Covid situation. Lots of benches to sit on near the main flower beds.

We were pleasantly surprised by how beautiful the gardens were, especially at the time of year.
A great asset for locals and visitors alike. So important particularly during these Covid times.
Top marks for those providing and maintaining such a lovely space. 😊

A great little park. We have good memories of warm days pre covid listening to band concerts. Even in October we wanted to come in here. Nice to see the squirrels but wish they were red not grey!!

As a Minehead resident I wanted to invite my friends and family to the Jubilee celebrations in June in Blenheim Gardens. To my shock our small well behaved dog on a lead is nit allowed in the park. My friends children have a little dog which is a loved member of the family, as is ours. We cannot be expected to leave dogs in the car, which we would never do. We have to miss the celebrations because of this ludicrous draconian and unfair ridiculous rule, in a town full of responsible dog owners. Please do something about this stupid rule so that we can all join in our queens celebrations! I’m sure she would be horrified to know we were turned away because of our beloved little dog! Thank you

What used to be a lovely little park has turned into a waste of space. My mum lives in Minehead and Blenheim Gardens used to be a place my parents would often visit together before my dad passed away, they would have coffee and cake at the lovely little café and then enjoy a walk round the park.
I took my mum who is now 91 to the park in her wheelchair at the weekend to find myself having to dodge groups of drunks and the café is a derelict building. . After making some enquiries I was told the café is being turned into a Wine Bar/Bistro as if there are not enough eating/drinking places in the Town. I have always felt Blenheim Gardens was the ideal place for the elderly to visit (providing they don't have a dog) because of the café and Band Stand....what on earth will a Wine Bar bring to the park other than more drunks? what it needs is for the café to be re-opened so elderly people can get away from the crowds that swarm the town from Butlins. I certainly wont be taking my mum back.

Absolutely beautiful gardens - really well maintained with fantastic flower displays. Nice quiet place to sit and relax. Lovely to find a dog-free place to enjoy without having to constantly check the grass for mess.

First of all visited the beach, no area of the beach, can you go with a dog.

Then thought we would visit these gardens - guess what no dogs allowed.

Needless to say, we wont be rushing back to Minehead. Looking at some of the shuttered shops on the front, they should be looking to encourage visitors and make them welcome.

Lovely garden in Minehead which we visited as near our hotel. Close to the harbour too. Green and good size, very pleasant walk. We went there during winter so not colour of flora. Well maintained.

Can't understand the no dogs rule. What the hell is a park for if not to walk your dog? For us it was a short cut into the town but couldn't use it as we are dog owners.
