Romsey's traditional public park is situated on the west side of town. A beautifully maintained park, it was created in 1920 from a 5 acre meadow locally known as Street Mead. It is surrounded on three sides by the world renowned River Test. Perfect for a stroll or to sit and enjoy one of the regular concerts in the bandstand, the park's facilities include a cafe, lawn bowls club, fishing, formal gardens, inclusive children's playground, tennis courts, toilets and seating.
A 150mm Japanese field gun is sited in the park. This was a donation from Lord Mountbatten who received the gun as Supreme Allied Commander of the South East Asia command on surrender of the Japanese forces. The current bandstand is based on original Victorian castings. It is also home to the beautiful Romsey War Horse statue, commissioned to commemorate the role of Romsey as a Remount Depot in the First World War.’
