Vines Park is a popular place for town centre workers to eat their lunch, with a canal running through it and the River Salwarpe on one side.
For centuries, however, it was the centre of Droitwich’s salt industry where men sweated and heaved and steam rose from vats of boiling water. One salt pit has been reconstructed, and visitors can also see a statue of St Richard (see ‘Salt’).
Festivals celebrating the town’s canals, history and local food & drink are held there.
The park is believed to have been a vineyard in Roman times.
