Town Gardens Swindon.

Swindon Town Gardens

Town Gardens, Swindon is one of the most attractive parks in our town. It’s located in Old Town. This Victorian garden, set in an old quarry, used to produce Portland stone. It is known for its array of beautiful flower beds and a gorgeous rose garden. It also has historic links to the Great Western Railway. Locals often lovingly called it ‘Old Town Gardens’ due to where it is and its popularity with residents.

Here you will find lots of information about the gardens, wonderful photos and videos. All of this we share on our far-reaching social media channels for all to enjoy. It all helps to promote a positive Swindon.

A lovely place to spend an afternoon. Sitting on a bench next to the pond or looking at the birds in the massive Avery. Also, if you fancy a mug of tea and a slice of Cake there is a nice little kiosk near the bandstand.

A pleasant place to go for a stroll, squirrels came to you, the budgies are beautiful colours and the small tea, coffee hut makes a lovely warm drink on a cold day and food is served to take away. All in all a pleasant day just walking around with plenty of benches to sit down on.

Always immaculate. Always colourful. A place for concerts and shows. What a gem for Swindon.
