This is a large open green area on the edge of the town centre. It was laid out in the 1930s with formal flower beds, grass and a children’s corner.
The attractive flower beds are still there with plenty of seats to sit and enjoy the sunshine. The rest of the park has changed out of all recognition with the addition of football and tennis courts. There is a large children’s play area with a paddling pool. There is a fun area (charge applies) with roundabouts, bouncy castles, Funland Express and whirling tea cups along with other attractions so beloved of the under 12s, including dodgems. There is crazy golf or adventure golf, skate board park and BMX track. Adjacent to the River Avon, there are pedaloes or rowing boats.
There is a large car park and a cafe which I didn’t use. But be warned, the toilets are heavily used and not very nice.
On a sunny Saturday the park was very busy with families enjoying the open air and sunshine. For the facilities offered to families, it is justifiably described as the best park for miles.
