French Weir park is a natural green area offering wide open space to run and play. The community park is situated alongside the River Tone in Taunton, providing a place for passive recreation, children's play and acting as an attractive route between residential areas, shops, schools and colleges. 

The park covers 2.4 hectares, with the Weir itself lying at the South-Western corner of the green. As well as a small woodland area, a bridge spans the Weir with gentle green banks beside the river providing a perfect place to stop for a picnic or to feed the ducks. An interesting new play area has been built to cater for different ages. 

French Weir has a range of amenities. Children's play area and kindergarten, public toilets with disabled facilities, wildlife areas, interpretation boards and a bug hotel.

The COACH (Centre for Outdoor Activities and Community Hub) project building will have a rowing, kayaking, canoeing and bike store as well as a store for the “Friends of French Weir” and the “Friends of Longrun Meadow”.  There is also public accessible toilets, changing rooms, kitchen and an independent coffee shop The Weir.
