Central to the town and originally the grounds to Evesham Abbey, the Park interprets that heritage in various ways, which make it well worth visiting. The site of the Abbey is marked out in the grass in the park and interpretation panels explain the history. The Park has a wonderful setting on a natural terrace with excellent views over the adjacent River Avon. Major redevelopment over a 10 year period has turned the derelict pools [originally the Abbey Fish Pools] into ornamental bog gardens and a lily pool; riverbank erosion has been remedied, and the entrances made more welcoming. Facilities for youngsters include a MUGA, a Skatepark, Water Play and general play area with trampoline, basket swing, slides and sand pit. There are quieter areas with information on the old Abbey, unique pieces of artwork and river boat trips are available from the quayside. The park throngs with families on a summer weekend listening to music from brass bands whilst the children enjoy themselves in the water play or in the natural themed play area which has a huge sand pit with multi function play tower.
