A Sunday stroll along the waterside through the park in Godalming. Whilst it’s a small park there is plenty of space to feel safe in the current environment. A few picnics being enjoyed and a few sup boarders on the canal. A nice place.

This is a beautiful place and worth a visit. It is also an interesting place to photograph because of the shadows.

It is usually quiet and relaxing.

There is a river nearby as well as a playground.

Lots of interesting things to see, info boards, church nearby, river, etc. Lots of space for children to run around and burn off energy. Beautiful town centre oasis.

Not a good time to visit, paths flooded. I would love to see it when the weather is good. Great place for a picnic or just a chill out!

If you park in the large Crown Court car park you’ll probably think the park only consists of a playing field and skatepark but you’d be wrong! The park actually extends quite a distance on other side of car park entrance road from council offices and along river Wey. There’s a bowling green, war memorial, allotments, sensory garden, meadow, playground and memorial cloister to local resident John Phillips, who heroically stayed at his post as Chief Wireless Telegraphist on RMS Titanic and went down with his ship. Information boards are dotted around and during summer months the the sound of music fills the air from bands playing on the bandstand. Overall a very pleasant and well maintained green space close to town centre.

On a walk around Godalming visiting friends we were introduced to The Phillips Memorial Cloister. This garden is in memory of Jack Phillips the telegraphist who stayed at his post on the Titanic, sending messages as she went down. The garden was designed by Gertrude Jekyll, with a magnificent brick cloister only 80 feet square designed by Hugh Thackeray Turner. It was laid out, built and opened exactly two years to the day after the sinking. The memorial is situated between the River Wey and Godalming Parish Church in the Phillips Memorial Park.

What could be more English than spending a Sunday afternoon listening to live music (from a bandstand), whilst people dressed in white played bowls in the background and the local parish church served cream teas.

The music (rock choir, then a band) were excellent; each Summer Sunday afternoon from 3 to 5 different groups take turns in providing the entertainment.

In the park you can see the memorial to Jack Phillips (Chief Wireless Telegraphist on the RMS Titanic) and learn about the events of that time. The park includes an excellent children’s playground, a skate park along, a riverside walk, and a conservation meadow and pond.

On a Sunday car parking (across the road) is free.
