This historic park is currently undergoing a major renovation to restore much of the original Victorian layout whilst bringing other features up to modern standards. It has beautiful gardens, a brand new children's playground and a charming miniature railway. At the time of writing a new cafe is being built and should be open during 2014. We find the park a great place to unwind when we've been shopping or sight seeing, particularly since it's only a few minutes walk from Chester city centre.
It is the venue for open air theatre in July and August, and lots of other outdoor events take place throughout the year.
The park dates back to 1867 and was designed by Victorian landscape
designer Edward Kemp. It was donated to the city by the second marquis
of Westminster. Grosvenor is their family name and you will see it
frequently in Chester.
