We Are Swindon’s Great Outdoors

We are a town that is surrounded with lots of stunning countryside. It also has many green parks and open spaces. Residents and visitors enjoy the space and love to explore it. The open spaces that we have include Lydiard House and Park, Lawn Woods, Queen’s Park, Coate Water, Stanton Park and Town Gardens.

Dog walkers and families fill our parks and fields treading their own familiar routes. In any one of Swindon’s many green spaces you’ll find parents pushing prams and children dashing around. There are local fitness groups doing boot camp classes and teenagers gathering to socialise.

Sharing our love for Swindon’s open spaces.

Our local social media community groups are filled with people who have a passion for the outdoors. These became even more popular in 2020 when outdoors fitness was encouraged because of the temporary closure of indoors fitness facilities.

Many local people found happiness and friendships by sharing information and photos online of them enjoying outdoors activities. This gave the We Are Swindon campaign more opportunity to promote our amazing outdoors.

Go to each page of out outdoor places as featured here. There you will find more information, a map and some reviews from visitors. We love to share photos from the We Are Swindon campaign and from Swindon people.
