Town Gardens, Swindon

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 gorgeous rose garden. It also has a historic links to the Great Western Railway. Locals often lovingly called it ‘Old Town Gardens’ due to its proximity and popularity with the residents of Old Town.

For music lovers, The Bowl hosts live events. The most recent being the ‘Swindon summer bowl’ in 2020. There is a bandstand where live music is played on warm weekend evenings. Locals enjoy this whilst lounging on deck chairs. Most events had to be postponed in 2020. We look forward to them hopefully returning in 2021.

For refreshments, there is a café that sells ice creams, milkshakes, tea, coffee, and bacon sandwiches.
