After a busy weekend it was lovely to relax in the open spaces. Water park facility looked excellent with showers and sprinklers in abundance.

We loved the walk along the river, the bandstand and the beautiful garden - it packs a lot into a fairly small space. There's so much to look at and it's wonderful maintained. A must visit when in Shrewsbury.

Great park area with landscaped gardens, large open areas, play parks, beautiful bridges over the Severn and walks along the river watching the rowers and saying hi to the long horned cattle. Lovely place
