About Us

Grosvenor Park is the main ornamental park in Chester and is extremely popular to residents and visitors to the city alike.

It is typically Victorian in its layout with formal avenues lined with trees, statues, large sweeping lawns surrounded with ornamental shrub beds and display bedding, for which the park has become well know.

The bedding displays are planted twice yearly to provide a spectacular and colourful display throughout the Spring and Summer months.

More recently, the park has become the focus for many significant cultural and horticultural events, including the Summer Music Festival, 'Art In The Park', and the annual prize-giving show for 'Chester In Bloom' and Allotments competition.

However, despite this annual frenzy of activity, Grosvenor Park continues to retain its peaceful character and charm with visitors enjoying more informal activities in this attractive setting.

    Sorry to say that altho’ this was interesting, it wasn’t as good as we expected. It is a free museum & well set out, but a little lacking. Read full review
