I never miss going into the Quarry garden - it is just fabulous and a credit to the staff who carefully look after it. It is set in a wonderful park bordered by the River Severn and right on the edge of our town

Great place for a quiet walk and close to the city centre. You can walk round the back of the buildings to Wyle Cop and see lots of interesting places including hidden gardens with lots of fig trees! Maybe Darwin walked the same paths sometimes?

I'm sorry I didn't notice disabled parking facilities but there are double yellows a lot. I know that doesn't always mean you can park. There is good walking on the flat and there are places to sit.
