Telford Town Park is a park and Local Nature Reserve in Telford in Shropshire.Parks for PeopleThe Parks for People funding programme is a joint initiative between the Heritage Lottery Fund and Big Lottery Fund, offering grants for projects that regenerate public parks of national, regional or local heritage value. Telford and Wrekin Council were recently advised of their Stage 2 approval and now move into the first year of the projects five-year delivery programme.This 5-year Project kicked off in 2011 with the first contract to deliver the Park's Master Plan starting on site Summer/Autumn. Plans include a new Teenage Activity Area, new learning zones and picnic areas throughout the wider Park, and the restoration of key historic features. Work is due for completion Summer 2012. The majority of works are taking place in the central and southern area of the park therefore disruption is deemed minimal to the majority of Park visitors. The remaining Master Plan work will follow and includes improved pathways, the creation of a Nature and Heritage Trail, new gateways, signage and interpretation of the Parks history and wildlife. Additional benefits delivered by the Project including an enhanced events and activities programme, and additional maintenance and management activities, will become prominent from 2012.The Park is located off Junction 5 of the M54, is within 10 minutes walk of Telford's main bus station, 5 minutes drive time from Telford Central railway station.MemorialsIn the park is a memorial, unveiled in May 2010, to residents of the Telford and Wrekin borough area who died serving in war since World War I. Sculpted by Malcolm Sear, whose workshops were at Jackfield, it incorporates a central ironwork poppy. The inscription, "Honouring those of this borough who served and sacrificed for us all", is shared between two pieces of Kilkenny stone.

  • Best park place I've been to. Came up from surrey. Only wish we had something like this close to home. It's well kept, safe and fun for all ages. 
  • Very open. Plenty of places to walk too. Plenty of things to see when walking around the lakes and woods. Great park for children and with Southwater competed (almost) there is lots of places to eat and drink.
  • A huge selection of climbing and play things for kids plus lots of green space and paths to follow. Also shops and eateries nearby. Loved the 'interactive wall' near the library.
  • It's a great park especially in the summer. Let down a bit at times by parent who just send there kids off to play and don't supervise, leaving them to ride roughshot over small kids at times.
  • Great place to go on a nice day. Always very very busy though. Plenty of things to do for both adults and kids.
  • Area has been, and so is, being redeveloped with bars, restaurants and cafes. Great place to meet friends for food and social time.
