The poem ‘People’s Park Banbury’ has been inspired by the photographs.

The photos, and poem were first posted on our hugely active Facebook group. Quite a thread emerged.

People’s Park Banbury.

Beautiful Flower Beds tendered with care
An Open Space ready to share
Glorious Trees coming in bud
Treat it with care, you know that you should.

War Memorial remembering the dead
Birds in the aviary got to be fed
Swings,a Slide ,a Round-a-Bout
Children playing hearing them shout.

The Bridge that goes over the stream
Courting Couples living the dream
Who’s for Tennis …anyone
Everyone is having fun.

Let’s just paddle in the pool
Don’t fall in and feel a fool
Exciting times when we were young
A meeting place for everyone.

The Big Wooden Hut saw lots of life
The German Dentist caused lots of strife
The Bandstand on a sunny day
Deckchairs, Picnics, Making hay.

Magical Memories rolled into one
Whether your old or whether your young
Somewhere to meet day after day
Whiling the long Summer hours away.

People’s Park Banbury.

With three hectares of land and formerly owned by George Frederick Ball the park was given to the people of Banbury as part of Queen Victoria’s Diamond Jubilee Celebrations in 1897.

It combines historic merit with a host of modern features; including a community garden, sensory garden, bowling green, rose garden, avary, war memorial, tennis/multi-use courts, fitness area and children’s play area.


Banbury Poet Beverley Coleman has published her second book of poems. Now available to purchase. All profits go to Katharine House Hospice in Banbury.

If you want one, Contact Dave Woodman via email

Arrangements can be made to post inland or abroad, P&P extra.
