Telford Town Park is located in the heart of Telford; it has 150 hectares of green space including a 92ha Local Nature Reserve and is classified as one of the UK’s largest urban parks.
The park has many great features including a number of play areas suitable for a range of ages including a trim trail, giant rocket slide, spider’s web, multi use games area, toddler area, sand diggers and an inclusive play area for wheelchair users. Activities also include adventure golf and an aerial ropes course.
During the summer months the park opens its water play area where little ones can splash under the water jets whilst parents and guardians can relax beneath the adjacent canopies with a fresh coffee from the snack bar. There are also a number of large grassed areas ideal for picnics, sunbathing and playing outdoor sports and events.
Telford Town Park is also home to three tranquil flower gardens including a Sensory Garden. All are ideal for those looking for a relaxed setting to take some time out, clear your head and perhaps read a book.
There are nature and heritage trails to explore, pools to fish, bridleways to hack along and cycling routes to enjoy, including one that links the park to world heritage site Ironbridge. Bike hire and accessories are available from the Cycle Hub located at the parks visitor centre.
Toddlers can also enjoy a visit to the Wonderland attraction and for an enjoyable day out for all of the family there is the Exotic Zoo.
