Gheluvelt Park in Worcester - a free way to spend an hour or two

Whether you're staying around Worcester, or just passing through and are looking for somewhere to take the kids for a couple of hours, may I recommend a visit to Gheluvelt Park.

Gheluvelt Park in Worcester Gheluvelt Park in Worcester - plenty for the kids to do

We just happened to be passing through Worcester, and were looking for somewhere to spend an hour or two; somewhere which didn't involve shopping, crowds of people, and a destination which didn't involve a visit to Wonga.com to pay for the fun. Gheluvelt Park fitted all of our criteria, so off we trotted.

The first thing to mention is that the car parking is free, which came as a pleasant surprise! Gheluvelt Park is a nice park - but for those with nippers in tow, this park really is the bees knees. A scattering of fun exercise contraptions (not sure what to call them, so contraptions will have to do) are scattered around. These are suitable for all members of the family - young and old.

Following the path round the park, you'll come to a modern traditional playground, which is very popular indeed. And further round the park there is a superb water feature for the summer months. When I say water feature, I don't mean in the "isn't that pretty" sense; I mean in the "let's get stuck in and get soaking wet" sense of the word.
Play fountains at Gheluvelt Park Make sure you bring a towel for the summer fun at Gheluvelt Park

We must have spent a good couple of hours at Gheluvelt Park - and actually had a better time than the previous day at Cadbury World.

Why is Gheluvelt Park called Gheluvelt Park

Here goes for a very brief bit of history about Gheluvelt Park. The name comes from a First World War battle in the Belgian town of Gheluvelt. The battle was fought by the 2nd Worcesters, and this park is named in memory of those who died. As you would expect from a memorial park, there is indeed a memorial to those who fought - this memorial can be found near the playground.
