Sandford Park tree walk

Sandford Park tree view

One of Cheltenham’s lesser known parks, Sandford Park is situated at the end of the High Street. College Road divides the park with the more formal ornamental side on the North and recreational area on the South.

The name Sandford is derived from the sandy soil and the old fork over the brook. Designed by the landscape architect Milner White, Sandford Park was acquired by the borough council in 1927. Since that date a number of changes have been made, features in the park include Unwins Fountain, an ornamental pond, rockery and the Friendship Circle.

The self-guided tree walk starts at the Bath Road entrance meandering across the park taking in some of the interesting trees ending at Keynsham Road.
