Festival Gardens

Enjoy our beautiful showcase gardens on your visit to Springfields

The Springfields Festival Gardens are a beautifully landscaped area, featuring Chelsea-style celebrity showcase gardens, including designs by Charlie Dimmock, Chris Beardshaw, Kim Wilde and Steven Woodhams, and a spectacular Japanese Garden by Sansui Design.

The Gardens were completely redeveloped in 2004, in conjunction with Springfields Horticultural Society, a charity dedicated to the improvement and growth of horticulture and floral design in the Spalding region.

They have welcomed some new additions, as innovative designer, Stephen Newby unveiled a collection of his spectacular stainless steel sculptures throughout the landscaped gardens. The ‘blown’ steel sculptures are largely based around a water theme, featuring a water pyramid fountain, pillow planters and a specially commissioned 15’ ‘Kaleidoscope Wheel’, situated in the canal.

Open all year round with FREE admission (except during fund-raising events), Springfields Festival Gardens were first opened in 1966 as the shop window for the flower bulb industry, introducing members of the public, amateur gardeners and enthusiasts to a wide range of horticultural experiences.

These include celebrity designed gardens; A Lifetime Ahead by Kim Wilde, Jungle Island by Charlie Dimmock, as well as Formal Gardens; Woodland Areas; Wetlands Areas; The Senses Garden; The Memorial Garden; The Sun Dial Garden & The Founders Garden.

The gardens are also home to:

Springfields Display Fountains The magnificent Springfields Display Fountains are the first of the kind in the UK, combining music water for wonderful shows. Displays take place every day on a seasonal basis to delight and amaze our visitors (subject to permitting weather conditions).
