Forbury Gardens, Reading Reviews - Write a Review

  • Very well kept. More of a large garden than a park, but very attractive with an unusual handkerchief tree, a rose garden area and mammoth sized lion statue. Feels like a step into Edwardian England.

  • Small pleasant park in central Reading. The Town Meal event hosted each autumn it's a great event bringing the town together.

  • Beautiful gardens very well looked after usually a fete or festival there to keep you occupied. Lovely to sit and think. But can get very busy in summer

  • picture postcard perfect municipal park. statue, check. bandstand, check. kiosk, check. impeccable flower beds check. if you arent a local some of the byways to it through churchyard or abbey are worth exploring

  • Love coming here on my lunch beak, it's like entering a different world. Quiet, green and peaceful, loads of benches to sit down and enjoy the scenery.
