Churchill Gardens


About Our Park: 

Churchill Gardens is located just over a mile to the south of the City centre, within walking distance of the shops, the Cathedral and Wiltshire College's Salisbury Campus.  Framed to the south and the east by the River Avon, Churchill Gardens is home to a wide variety of shrubs and trees, adding considerable colour and texture to the landscape.

With a crisscross of pathways running through the park, Churchill Gardens is a popular setting for a relaxing walk alongside the river; the same paths are equally good for running and cycling if you’re feeling more energetic! Churchill Gardens is home to Parkrun on Saturday mornings and Junior Parkrun on Sunday mornings

Churchill Gardens also showcases a large and popular skatepark rebuilt and opened by the Mayor in September 2014, as well as a street sports area (for basketball, football, rollerblading & street hockey. A Parkour area was added in 2020 and a Disc Golf in 2022).

The park also has two children’s play areas - one for younger children, and the other for the more adventurous.  As well as this, the grassed areas in the park are suitable for impromptu sports or just taking in the scenery.
