Lincoln Parks

Lincoln is full of great parks! If you want to take time out from sight-seeing, have an alfresco picnic, or simply let the kids’ have a good run about, then here are three great open spaces for you to choose from…

      The Temple Gardens

The Temple Gardens are part of The Collection/Usher Art Gallery grounds. These lovely formal gardens, with winding paths, modern art sculptures, ‘temple’ ruins and superb views of the Medieval Bishops’ Palace and Lincoln Cathedral are a great place to take time-out from sight-seeing.

The Arboretum

The Arboretum is a delightful Grade II listed park, with beautifully landscaped gardens, fountains, play area and cafe. Although it is the furthest away of the three parks, it is still less than a 10 minute walk from the cathedral and is certainly worth the effort. In good weather, it is the perfect place to have a picnic. Access to The Arboretum is from both Lindum Terrace and Monks Road. It is well signposted from the Cathedral Quarter.

The Lawn

The Lawn is a large grassy area that is just perfect for picnics or relaxing in the sun. With a children’s play area and free entry to The Sir Joseph Banks Conservatory (open at weekends), it is well worth checking out. Located on Union Road, opposite the West Gate of Lincoln Castle. While you’re there, why not try some food or drinks at nearby Stokes or Ole Ole?
