This park follows Broughton Brook, from Pineham through the length of Broughton and into Kingston - offering local residents an attractive outlook and a quiet place to escape with the family, the dog…or their own thoughts. At Broughton Gate midway along the linear park next to Southwold Crescent is a popular children's play area, with another located at Kidderminster Walk.
What to see and do
The iconic cable stayed bridge is one of two road crossings that span Broughton Brook and is visible for miles around.
St Lawrence Church, dating from the 14th century, sits on the edge of the park’s north east boundary and is worth a visit for its wall paintings, hidden until a restoration in 1849. Covering large parts of the church’s north and south walls the murals include a depiction of St George slaying the dragon.
