The Quarry, Shrewsbury

4.8
#1 of 10 in Nature in Shropshire
Meander through The Quarry, a 11 hectare (29 acre) park conviently located close to town. Leave the busy life behind and take a walk through the park to the river. Relax on a bench or have a picnic in the grass. Look for the Dingle, a formal flower garden with a landscaped pond, designed over 30 years by a master gardener. Let the dogs loose the run in the grass and play in the river. To visit The Quarry and other attractions in Shrewsbury, use our Shrewsbury vacation builder site .

  • We sat for a while then had a wonder, there is a band stand which is often used but not on the day we went........shame.  more »
  • The Quarry is a lovely green space in the middle of Shrewsbury. When you have had enough of shopping you can just pop to the Quarry and particularly the Dingle for some peace and tranquility.  more »
  • Jogging, cycling, strolling, playing footbal, going on the swings or there to admire the flowers, it's just a great place to visit.  more »

  • Fantastic place for while family, great playing park for kids including safe splashing area, which my son loves! Beautiful flower garden and main park, where you can spend hours walking or cycling. Swimming pool and a lots of attractions whole year round😀 I recommend a nice pub on the other side of the river with beautiful view of Quarry!
  • Disappointed by the early 3:45pm closing time of the Dingle. Could have waited until after the clocks had been put back an hour. And there was dog muck on some of the kids play equipment. Not sanitary at all. But Quarry and Dingle looking good as usual.
  • Have been to the Quarry and dingle hundreds of times and its always lovely to see. A lovely walk can be had along the river and through to the town. Lots to see along the way. The dingle is just amazing with such vibrant colours,ponds and flowers. You do have to see it for yourself. You can also take a pleasent boat trip around the Quarry.
  • A very nice relaxing place. A good variety of plants, trees and shrubs with statues. A perfect place to sit and contemplate.
  • A great place for all the family. I grew up around here, having great summer's jumping off the bridge (I wouldn't advise it now though)
