Owned by Southampton City Council, but improved and maintained almost exclusively by volunteers of the Friends of Town Quay Park, the Park is a welcome area of open space and nature within the historic Old Town of Southampton. Surrounded by 1000 years of history, with medieval ruins and old buildings the Park offers the opportunity for relaxation, with views looking over the port of Southampton.

Improved substantially since 2010, Town Quay Park is now a mix of grass lawns and planting, with interesting trees, fruit trees, herb beds, shrubs and flowers. From the majestic remains of a Norman merchant’s building (named erroneously as ‘Canute’s Palace’) to the recently completed “contemplation” labyrinth, there are a wide range of different spaces, each with their unique feel.
