Priory Park is close to Malvern Town Centre next to the historic Malvern Theatres.

Visitors can also enjoy splendid views of the Malvern Hills from the park.The back of Malvern Theatres overlooking Priory Park

Every year the park hosts a variety of events including live music, outdoor cinema and festivals attracting people from near and far.

The park also includes a children's play area, a Victorian bandstand and duck pond.

The park started out as the grounds of Priory Mansion which was built by Alfred Miles Speer and completed in 1877. He bought at auction for £4,500 what is now Priory Park and Swan Pool.

The current plan of the park has changed little from the original layout of the pleasure gardens associated with Priory Mansion. Many of the paths still follow their original routes and a large proportion of the trees date from the Victorian era.

Malvern Splash Leisure Centre, which is based at the entrance off Priory Road, was built in 1988 replacing an open air swimming pool. It has recently had a £2million revamp including a new flume and water play features.
