Extremely popular park that has a quirky design. Looks like wooden castles from a distance. Can get busy at times. But there is plenty of room for everyone. I enjoyed the 2 Cafes that are right next to park. Also has a library adjacent

I frequently walk my dog through the urban forest and it is a serene and lovely place to visit. I often see young mums and their children exploring. Make sure your dog is on a lead! Well done to staff who care for our slice of paradise! X

Beautiful Old Building

The Malvern Town Hall is well maintained and has a typical design for the 1890s or so. I quite like the architecture and the building does get some use as a public venue for hire. However, just having a look can be free.

A children’s museum designed to foster creativity, curiosity and learning through imaginative play. Set amidst a scaled-down, indoor “mini-city”, Interaxcity is a place where kids are the community heroes and can choose to take on any role (e.g. chef, construction worker, doctor). Open to the public for a limited number of sessions daily. Bookings recommended
