The Town Centre Gardens were developed in the mid-1960s, and are the primary formal and ornamental public gardens in Stevenage.

Location

Our site plan shows that the Gardens are in close proximity to the swimming pool, Bowes Lyon House and Stevenage museum. The site is a large open and close mown grassland area surrounded by trees. For local residents, there is a footpath network providing access to the park from the Bedwell neighbourhood.

Features

As well as a fenced and equipped play space for toddlers and young children, the main features of the park include:

  • Ornamental landscapes with plantings of roses, perennials and seasonal bedding displays.
  • An ornamental spring fed pond, marginal and aquatic planting, fountain and bridge.
  • A large collection of ornamental, commemorative and memorial trees.
  • A sensory garden.
  • Remnants of ancient lane hedgerows.

Reporting problems

Grounds maintenance teams visit the Gardens on a weekly basis. Cleansing and litter picking is carried out throughout the day, seven days a week.

If you notice a problem that needs to be resolved, please let us know so that we can deal with it promptly.
