  • Lovely town park, well maintained and is used to host a large variety of shows and events. With shops close by. Parking could be better. space can be obtained.
  • Chilled out park by the river. Loads of different things in a beautiful area including play park and walking. Percy Thrower Garden well worth a look even if you don't like that kind of thing!
  • Large friendly park on the river. Great children's safe play area with play fountains fenced off. Leisure centre access from top. Two lots of toilets. Great place for dog walkers. Band stand concerts. Also music events, and other varried happening which are advertised.
  • Great Park for a summers stroll through. Lovely river to walk along with periodic sculptures and works of art to loon at. Venue for open air concerts which are a must if you live locally or are visiting the area.
  • Nice park by the river Severn. Children's play area, lots of open space and a central garden with a duck pond. Would benefit from a dedicated cafe with a seating area, rather than the coffee kiosk it has currently.
