Town Quay Park is situated in the Old Town area of Southampton surrounded by the city’s medieval vaults and walls. It lies opposite Town Quay between Lower High Street and Bugle Street. > Map
The Friends of Town Quay Park (FTQP ) was formed in April 2010 in response to the potential threat of Southampton City Council selling the land for development.
The council are developing plans for the whole City centre including the Town Quay Park area. Following strong representation from FTQP the City Centre Action Plan no longer has the Park as a development site. You can > download current City Centre Action Plan and > download FTQP’s original response here. We remain vigilant in protecting the park from residential and commercial development
Anyone who shares the aims of FTQP is welcome to > become a member. Each year members elect a committee who manage the affairs of FTQP on their behalf.
We are currently consulting on plans to improve the park and will be raising funds to do the work which includes better seating, new plants and some signage.
