Used all-year round, Queen’s Park is a public park in the centre of Swindon and an absolute gem. With a huge central lake and scores of happy ducks, a large tree lined grass area, benches, memorial garden and VE day 50 artwork, there’s something for everyone to enjoy.
First developed in the 1940’s (known then as Central Park), Queens Park has four different entrances that lead to a variety of semi-hidden statues, the most notable of which is a metal sculpture of a gorilla.

The top lake has a decorative stone-carved fountain and is surrounded by carefully placed benches that ensure guaranteed sunspots or maximum shade for visitors, and attracts swans and other bird species. The main pond overlooks a tree-lined field enjoyed by many visitors in warmer months for picnics and playing sports.
