Blenheim Gardens is a popular 6 acre park in the centre of Minehead. It was created in the 1920’s and is now a  mature, attractive and sheltered haven. The park provides spring and summer bedding displays, a wide range of trees, shrubs and perennials which thrive in the mild seaside climate. The flower beds and shrub areas are framed by lawns. There is a bandstand for summer weekend concerts and brass bands.

Blenheim Gardens is host to a number of events throughout the year. For details of these as well as other events taking place in Minehead see the listings on Minehead Town Council website.

There is a public shelter, toilets, a Burma Star Memorial Garden, and plenty of seating.

Blenheim Gardens has its own Facebook page.
