Cox’s Meadow is a mixture of wetland, wildland and parkland. The area isn’t that big, but it makes an excellent little dog walk if visiting Cheltenham and has a lovely little cafe situated in the park.
The parkland is undulating, with small mounds on the edges that creep down into a pretty wildland in the centre, with a cycle path on one side and a stream on the other.
The park is actually a vital flood defense for Cheltenham, as the town is vulnerable to floods caused by run-offs from thunderstorms high on the nearby hills. Following heavy rain the area turns into a wetland and then once the floodwater has drained back into the River Chelt, it becomes a meadow again.
