Vivary Park is Taunton’s premium park, located just minutes away from the town centre. At 7.5 hectares, Vivary Park is the perfect place to go for a picnic, a stroll or to spend the day.
The park is an important part of Taunton’s history. Since at least 1851 the Taunton Flower Show has occupied Vivary Park for the first weekend in August, due to its ideal location in the town. Previously a medieval vivarium for the priory and castle, Vivary Park was officially laid out in 1895 as a public space for recreation and organised events. The iconic front gates and bandstand still stand today. In 1902, an Oak tree was planted close to the bandstand to mark the coronation of Edward VII. The fountain was unveiled in 1907 as a memorial to the late Queen Victoria.
To this day, Vivary Park is still one of the top attractions in the town. The park now accommodates a large childrens adventure play area, tree trail, tennis courts, golf course, miniature golf, bowling green as well as a nearby café.
