Parks and Open Spaces
Bedford Borough Council is responsible for maintaining many
varied parks and green spaces from urban and country parks to small
patches of green in residential areas.
Best known to visitors is the riverside promenade
running through the town centre made up of the
Russell Park and Mill Meadows.
The ornate Victorian Suspension Bridge across the river was opened
on the same day as Bedford Park,
another Victorian gem situated to the north of the town centre at
the end of the imposing De Parys Avenue.
