Parks & Open Spaces
Wychavon District Council is responsible for the award winning Parks and Open Spaces in the Evesham, Pershore and Droitwich Spa areas including two designated Nature Reserves (one of which is in Broadway).
Some other sites are managed with wildlife needs very much in mind and these are noted as Nature Areas.
It has a wonderful setting with a natural terrace and excellent views from the higher levels over the adjacent river Avon. Boat trips run from the Park Quay in the summer.Central to the town and originally the grounds to Evesham Abbey, the park interprets that heritage in a variety of ways.
On the opposite bank of the river Avon to Abbey Park these linear gardens provide close access to the water along a paved towpath. The park hosts various events in the year including a Churches Together event and the main river festival in July. At the bridge end of the park the avenue of mature lime trees is lit at night with purple and green up-lighters which give a very romantic mediterranean feel to the river frontage.
This extensive area of flood meadow is used for recreational purposes most of the year. Parking in the summer and football in the winter. It hosts a variety of events through the year from fairs to the huge fishing festival in August.
It runs from Abbey Park Evesham and the rowing club to the east along to the Bridge at the A44.
These tranquil gardens sited on the opposite bank of the river Avon to Crown Meadow are a haven for those who love quiet seating with good views.
The pieces of artwork blend into the setting and at the same time provide points of interest as visitors walk round the terraces.
Come summer time the annual cornfield meadow shows off its colourful display of native and ornamental plants.
