Owner description: Telford Town Park is set in the heart of Telford adjacent to Southwater and Telford Shopping Centre. Telford Town Park is a large park, occupying 1.7 square kilometres.The park offers a wide range of facilities and activities from long walks with beautiful scenery to hours of fun with the children on its wide range of play equipment.

A bit difficult for parking at the momment with all the building work going on but should soon be finished, lots of new features added,only down side was a couple of the small rides were broken, and the cherry gardens were not as well looked after but work was going on in there, a good day out for families

There is a huge amount about the space, walks and play areas to like ... Overall this is excellent.
My one gripe from today is the new 12 hole mini golf course. This is an excellent addition but 1. The balls are of such low quality it is like putting with dough balls. 2. Does the designer of the holes play golf, or mini golf. Some of them are so easy it defeats the object of the hole. One of them requires you to put into a huge bunker hole, which then filters the ball every time to the edge of the hole or in it. It's not even worth playing other than the uncertainty of whether you get a hole in one or are left with a two inch putt.
Shame about the golf but this is developing into a great little town and the park seems to be evolving with the town.

It is surprising that a park of this size exists in a town. There is a really nice play area for children with some quite scary things for them to climb on too.
