The Quarry, Shrewsbury

4.8
#1 of 6 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 .

    For a town of its size, the quarry is a fantastic place. With safe and modern play facilities, a clean mini water park and regular / varied events it is a real gem of a park.  more »

  • 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.
