“Lovely park”
Reviewed 1 July 2014

Lovely park close to the river, stroll along the river bank, have a picnic or just relax by the beautiful flower garden in the Dingle. Plenty to see and do.

“Stunning”
Reviewed 1 July 2014

Well Percy certainly knew how to landscape such a small area and make it interesting all the way round. It was just coming into bloom and was maintained very well.
A lovely setting in the middle of the larger park, very busy but well worth a look!

“A great place to relax”
Reviewed 30 June 2014

The is a very nice open park close to the river and the centre of Shrewsbury. It has a children's play park, swimming pool, and a nice garden/pond area called the Dingle. There is masses of space to picnic, stroll along the riverside, or just sit and watch the world go by.

Some nice restaurants, plus river trips available near by.

“Beautiful park”
Reviewed 30 June 2014

This is a very spacious park, with the river running along the side. Great for picnics. The town makes good use of it for their flower show and events. The garden that Percy Thrower designed had just been planted up, it will look stunning in a month's time.

First time I went to the food festival and had a lovely day. It is so nice to have something like this in the quarry park and not go elsewhere. great stalls and food tasting.
