Grosvenor Park

Watch a Shakespearean play in an open-air theater, explore medieval arches and ride a miniature train in this Victorian-era park.

The spacious public gardens of Grosvenor Park are laid out in the charming Victorian style. The park’s vast 20-acre (8-hectare) grounds are decorated by floral displays and ornamental shrubs. Stroll through the park and enjoy riverside views or find a grassy spot to sit and relax in this serene open area.

Look out over the River Dee from the southern section of the park. The western area affords a vista of the Roman ruins beside the Chester City Walls. Admire the black-and-white design of the Grosvenor Park Lodge, which was once the park keeper’s home. It now contains the council’s parks and gardens office and a café.

Marvel at the colorful beds of flowers and plants that brighten the park in spring and summer. Stroll along the footpaths on a pleasant day and explore the park’s historical features. See Billy Hobby’s Well, which was once believed to have magical properties.

Walk through one of three medieval arches that once stood in other parts of the city, such as St. Mary’s Arch. This structure was formerly part of a 13th-century nunnery.

Take a ride on one of the steam or diesel trains that course around the miniature railway. Kids can take a tour with Thomas the Tank Engine or sit in the driver’s seat of Trevor the Tram.

Attend a Shakespearian play at the open-air theater. Book tickets from the city’s visitor information center in Town Hall Square. The park also hosts events such as the Summer Music Festival, Art in the Park and the Chester in Bloom competitions.

Enter Grosvenor Park at any time for free. The park lies just to the east of the Chester City Walls in the city center. Take a bus to one of the stops on the park’s northern border. Walk along the banks of the River Dee to see nearby attractions, such as the Chester Roman Gardens, the Chester Roman Amphitheatre and the Wesley Church Centre.
