“Benefit scroungers galore!”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 15 August 2014

Never been so negative but I can't stand the people in this park. Nature is all great but the people that go there destroy any nice atmosphere.
Fat lazy women pushing around 4 kids while smoking, chav lads walking around like headless chickens and hurling abuse at anyone that won't give them a 'fag'.
Telford is not a place I'd recommend to anyone at all. Its portrayed as a bustling place with a great atmosphere- it doesn't, it's all media bias and any criticism is challenged to the point of bullying by local councils.
Please do you self a favour and go to shrewsbury or birmingham.

“wow!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 4 August 2014

Think its been about 4 years since I was last here-what a great change! It was always good but this is just so well thought out as a centre to entertain young and older....the zipwires and rope area was costly but great entertainment for my 11 and 15 year old. Needs better signposting for toilets but fantastic area-thank you great town planners!

“It's huge...the park, that is.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 4 August 2014

Telford may be a new town, and not to everyone's taste, but their amenities a great. The park stretches for miles, and has an amazing kids' playground.

“What an excellent facility for Telford”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 August 2014

Set in 450 acres this has everything to keep the kids and adults alike entertained. Still developing, there are an array of shops as well as the walks for the dogs. Every town/City should have this! well jealous.

“Excellent park, first rate for children and free!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 29 July 2014

The park has undergone a complete transformation in the past 18 months.
Although Wonderland is a bit jaded and difficult to justify the 7 pounds + entry per person, the park is free, spacious, clean, well maintained and great fun...children will LOVE the water splash area.
Theres lots of different areas to picnic including a chess set seating area and the view down to the new Southwater development is eye catching.The visitors centre has plenty of clean loos and a baby changing unit.
Certainly worth a visit...take a few pounds for ice cream and a ride on the park train!
