Situated next to the Water Tower and the walls, the Water Tower Gardens is a key community city centre park where history, nature and sporting and play facilities for all ages all come together with a hugely popular wooden children's play area bowling green, tennis court and putting area.
The Water Tower Gardens and the surrounding area are part of a designated Conservation Area and both the Tower and the Walls are scheduled Ancient Monuments on the National Heritage List for England as a designated Grade I listed building dating back as far as the 14th century.
Located off Tower Road next to the Water Tower and the city walls and the canal also runs alongside so it's a great space for a stroll with the family. The gardens can be accessed by five different entrances; three of these are fully accessible to wheelchair users.
The park is open from 10am to sunset during British Summer Time (BST).
