Grosvenor Park

UK»England»Cheshire»Chester»Grosvenor Park

The twenty acres which form Grosvenor Park were given to the City by Richard, the second Marquis of Westminster in1867. The park retains many features from the original layout, and the character is as you would expect of a classical 19th century designed park. Other aspects of the park include the pond and the community run miniature working railway track on the east side. The sensory garden and large area of open space are on the west side which is mainly used for informal recreational sporting activities. Another feature to note is in the south western corner of the park, near to the entrance to the Groves you will find three interesting architectural remnants of Chesters medieval buildings. The park falls away on its southern edge to the River Dee and affords fantastic views of the river to the south east. You have views for many miles across Edgars Eye the meadows and out towards the county of Shropshire.
