Queens Park Swindon: Queens Park is considered by English Heritage to be of sufficient historic interest to be placed on the Register of Parks & Gardens as a grade II site in 2001 because it is a representative example of a public park laid out in the immediate post war years and developed further in the early 1960s.


The aim was to create a garden where cultivated plants and trees can be grown in natural surroundings with an atmosphere of freedom and space. The non-symmetrical planting of trees and shrubs has created a park with many hidden facets characterised by its glades and vistas
