The Quarry is one of many gems in Shrewsbury. It is a wonderful park by the river and have amazing views both towards the river and Saint Chad's Church. Also has a hidden gem: The Dingle. A fabulous garden kept and maintain by the Horticultural Society. Stunning at any time of the year. There is a play area for smaller... More

In the center is the dinglle and the flowers are fantastic and also the water feature is great . My mother and father have a memorial bench... More

Why can't all municipal garden attractions be this good? A delightful interlude in summer all shade and fragrance and peaceful pools, and a still-vibrant in winter showcase of why Shrewsbury's long reputation for floral magnificence is so richly deserved.

All very beautiful as others have said and it's the perfect place for an easy walk from the historic town centre...took us about an hour which was easy strolling. The autumn colours and flowers were pretty. It looks like the perfect place for a tea house or cafe...we were looking for somewhere for morning tea down near the river. Perhaps... More

The quarry hides a beautiful garden just in the park beside the Severn River. There are a number of paths to take and plenty of seating to just relax and and admire the garden. A must if you visit Shrewsbury

The holiday apartment we rented was by the river and every morning, my husband and I would get out for a pre-breakfast walk - onto the towpath, into the Quarry and out to the station-side by the Welsh Bridge. In the two weeks we were there, we witnessed 'marathon' races, fishing competitions, families, dogs and of course, you can watch... More

Nice place for a wander on a nice day. Take your dog, or just go for a relaxed stroll along the river. There's a great playground for little ones too.
