The Quarry Park in Shrewsbury

Shrewsbury is fortunate to have its own 29-acre parkland known as The Quarry. Throughout the year you’ll find a host events taking place at The Quarry Park, including The Carnival, Shrewsbury Regatta and Dragon Boat Racing to name just a few.

At its centre lies The Dingle, a formal floral masterpiece created by world renowned gardener Percy Thrower of Blue Peter fame - during his 28 years here as our Parks Superintendent. It’s a beautiful sunken garden landscaped with alpine borders, colourful bedding plants, shrubbery and water features.
