Town Quay Park is situated in the Old Town area of Southampton surrounded by the city’s medieval vaults and walls.  It lies opposite Town Quay between Lower High Street and Bugle Street. > Map

The Friends of Town Quay Park (FTQP ) was formed in April 2010 in response to the potential threat of Southampton City Council selling the land for development

The council are developing plans for the whole City centre including the Town Quay Park area.  Following strong representation from FTQP the City Centre Action Plan no longer has the Park as a development site.  You can > download current City Centre Action Plan and > download FTQP’s original response here. We remain vigilant in protecting the park from residential and commercial development

Alongside activities to save and improve the park, which now includes a gardening group – details here - FTQP organises > events that bring the local community together.

Anyone who shares the aims of FTQP is welcome to > become a member. Each year members elect a committee who manage the affairs of FTQP on their behalf.

We are currently consulting on plans to improve the park and will be raising funds to do the work which includes better seating, new plants and some signage.

A very moving ceremony was held at the FEPOW memorial on 18th November.   

Bob Hucklesby, 95, who returned to Southampton on 18th November 1945 came to lay a wreath to commemorate his safe arrival and also those who did not return.
