1894

TOWN GARDENS OPENED TO THE PUBLIC> The Town Gardens are between Bath Road and Westlecot Road in Old Town, Swindon. Opened in May 1894 on the undulating Okus field, the site of old Purbeck stone quarries formerly owned by the Goddard family. The earlier part of the site was laid out by Mr Morris, the Old Swindon Local Board's surveyor, with Mr W H Read, architect, on behalf of Swindon Urban District Council. The Gardens were opened in May 1894 by Mr W Reynolds, Chairman of the Board. Mr G S Walters provided many shrubs and trees (Swindon Advertiser 1894). Mr A John Gilbert submitted a design as a recreation ground for residents of Swindon's Old Town which was laid out in 1902 to include a rustic bridges, a shelter, maze and seats. The Rose Garden was created in the mid 20th Century, so too was the bandstand with arena.
