It is extremely well equipped for those of all ages, with facilities including tennis courts, a pitch-and-putt golf course, a children’s playground, an animal farm and a café, and has been awarded Green Flag status for the past 17 years.

Queen’s Park was named to honour Queen Victoria, who opened the Royal Agricultural Show that took place on the site in 1879. The show was memorable due to the extremely bad weather during one of the wettest summers on record. Although a permanent site for the show was chosen elsewhere in Twyford, popular demand saw the central part of the site protected as green space and opened as a park in 1886. It was named Queen’s Park the following year to celebrate the Golden Jubilee of the monarch.
On the northern side of the park, you will find attractive Victorian and Edwardian style properties, perfect for families or those in need of more space. While on the southern side, you’ll discover a range of multi-tenanted properties (both converted houses and purpose-built luxury flats) which are ideal for couples or singles. With a number of architectural styles available, Queen’s Park provides an exceptional opportunity as it offers a wide range of property options to satisfy almost anyone’s tastes, requirements and budget.
Queen’s Park’s main high streets can be found on Salusbury Road to the East and Chamberlayne Road to the West.

Chamberlayne Road, the longer of the two High Streets, is also known for its antique shops, while the weekly Farmers’ Market is always enjoyable to hunt for local artisan treasures.
