“Hidden Delight of Trowbridge”
Review of Trowbridge Park

Trowbridge Park
Ranked #8 of 20 things to do in Trowbridge
Attraction details
Reviewed 8 August 2014

So many people live in Trowbridge, but don't use the park.
It has been improved vastly over the years I have lived here and now, as a Support Worker, I find that many of the people I support really enjoy this facility. It even offers cheap popcorn, sweets and drinks for a visit to the cinema on a limited budget.
There is a fantastic playground, tennis, crazy golf, bowls, duck pond (who doesn't love feeding the ducks?) affordable café or just a stroll around the pleasant gardens. It also hosts many local events throughout the year.
Yes, I have to agree with previous reviews, it can become a drinking and drug taking area after dusk, and personally I would only walk through it accompanied. Unfortunately, due to Council Budget cuts, there will no longer be qualified Street Based Youth Workers helping with the problems as from the end of July 2014.
IF YOU WOULD LIKE TO SEE YOUTH WORKERS RE-INSTATED, PLEASE LOBBY YOUR COUNCIL!

Great if you like alcoholics with cans of grog at 9am . Slightly strange place in my humble opinion. Dirty , old condoms on floor , few drunks sleeping on a bench, vomit , and a smell that's was I desirable to say the least.

We are very lucky to have a such a nice park, big green open spaces and a nice place to picnic right next to the town centre. Yes there are things that could be done to improve it but I have been to plenty of places with much less. The new drinks and gifts kiosk by the car park is very good and the childrens play area is always popular , as is the duck pond. I am also very impressed by the amount of events held in the park.

Never felt safe in the park. Despite the attempts to provide facilities these quickly become dirty, broken and vandalised. Last visit witnessed youngsters of both sexes urinating in public areas - not a pleasant experience. Would not go there!

A park that gets the sun all day long and has a large childrens play area with plenty of attractions. There is a local park tuck-shop too, which is handy...
