Town Gardens Celebrates 125 years

Swindon Town GardensAt the recent meeting of the South Swindon Parish Council there was universal support to celebrate the creation of the Town Gardens in 1894 with the best possible birthday present - refurbished gates! These wonderful gates will be totally and expertly renewed to their original Victorian glory. Swindon's oldest premier park was laid out on the site of old stone quarries formerly owned by the Goddard family and opened by Mr. W Reynolds, Chairman of the Old Swindon Local Board. I hope to renew the currently unused notice board by the aviary at the park with some historical items and long overdue details on the birds in the aviary.
