“TLive at Telford Town Park”
Reviewed September 8, 2013

Fantastic opportunity for all locals and afar to come out and listen to some truly excellent local and national bands! Fantastically organised event, great vibe and safe atmosphere. Might sound daft,must the best portaloos ever! Telford and Wrekin council have really made the first ever T-Live a truly super event. I went with friends and family and it was a great atmosphere for children and adults and a good line up of bands such as Stoosh, local band The Making and Madison and the headliners McFly didn't fail to impress!! Where else can you hear great music and great bands for £36 for an adult and a little less for teens, and only £10 for under 10s and free for under 4s. Only negative the price of food and drink - take a wad of cash with you or else eat before you come and bring your own drinks. Think this might be the first of many, if back next year we will definitely go - just remember to take something to sit on, and add additional layers, early September means evenings get cold quickly!

“Great place”
Reviewed September 4, 2013 via mobile

I would rarely think of going to the park in Telford as like so many other areas of the town it failed to inspire me to visit. What a shock then when my wife and I took our grandson today. Apart from all the building going on around, the park is a real pleasure for kids and a delight for adults. I was captivated by the archaeological activity whilst our grandson was safely playing in the superb wet play area. Snack bar, clean toilets are all to hand in the visitor centre which also boasts a small display of goings on in the park. All in all a good visit and one to be repeated.

“Fantastic new and improved town park”
Reviewed August 27, 2013

Not long back from a holiday visiting my Mom and Dad and we spent several days at the Telford Town Park.
Fantastic resource for families, the new park is great fun and has so much too offer.
The new water play zone is a very innovative idea and we could not get my son out of there.
The huge sandpit and diggers are fabulous and that's just the start. There is sensory play area, huge rocket slide and so much more.
Loads of seating areas and picnic tables, great toilet facilities and the most important part it is all FREE... If your in the area make sure you visit this place, boredom is not a word that will enter your vocabulary..

“A great day out for all the family.”
Reviewed August 18, 2013

A great place to take the children for a great day out. Great array of play equipment for all ages. Visitors centre with drinks and snack bar. Well worth a visit.

Downside - too close to Shopping Centre. Wife went for a quick look round and came back 3 hours later!
