Things to do at Bedford Park review

Bedford Park is located just north of Bedford town centre in Bedfordshire. It is a Grade II listed English Heritage Victorian park and it was first created back in 1888. The park is one of five Bedford Borough Council managed parks that have been awarded a Green Flag. This scheme recognises quality parks and open spaces around the world.
