Parks and Green Spaces

Workman Gardens, Evesham

View location on Google Maps

On the opposite bank of the river Avon to Abbey Park these linear gardens provide close access to the water along a paved towpath. The park hosts various events in the year including a Churches Together event and the main river festival in July. At the bridge end of the park the avenue of mature lime trees is lit at night with purple and green up-lighters which give a very romantic Mediterranean feel to the river frontage.

These gardens have been awarded Green Flag status each and every year since 2007.
