Tripadvisors tilnærming til anmeldelser
Hver Tripadvisor-anmeldelse går gjennom et automatisert sporingssystem før den legges ut. Dette systemet samler inn informasjon som svarer på følgende spørsmål: Hvordan, hva, hvor og når. Hvis systemet oppdager noe som muligens strider imot retningslinjene våre for fellesskapet, blir anmeldelsen ikke publisert.
Når systemet oppdager et problem, kan en anmeldelse automatisk avvises, sendes til anmelderen for bekreftelse eller gjennomgås manuelt av teamet vårt av innholdsspesialister. Disse spesialistene jobber døgnet rundt for å opprettholde kvaliteten av anmeldelsene på nettstedet vårt.
Teamet vårt sjekker hver anmeldelse som er lagt ut på nettstedet og bestrides av fellesskapet vårt for ikke å møte retningslinjene våre for fellesskapet.

Lovely children’s park with bridge being build to cross the River Seven. The park has some interesting military history and a complicated to understand war memorial on the east side. A lovely children’s park, ponds and cycle paths make it perfect for small people. If you walk further west you get to the river Seven where you can walk down along the river in the racing grounds of pitchcroft - soon you will be able to use the new bridge to walk / ride over the river. Creat place for walking dogs, children and the like

Lovely park and well maintained. Thr splashpark was bust but really accessible and allowed access for those with additional needs. Bright and colourful, my daughter loved moving around between the different water features. The toilets are close by and there is a booth that provides drinks and ice creams that accepted cash and card, reasonably priced too. Lots of seating area around the splashpark, lovely flowerbeds and nit far from the pump house which provides snacks and a wider variety of drinks. The whole park is wheelchair accessible too. From the reactions if the people that were there from all demographics, it was pleasing to see that it is a much loved place. There wasn't any litter around either which was lovely to see.

There are lovely grounds to see surrounding every footpath. The park has its own interesting and historic old waterworks building eco cafe and activity centre. The park too is flanked on one side by The River Severn and it's walkside footpath, and by old historic Worcester plus just a short walk to the Worcester Museum and Art Gallery which is definitely worth a visit too. A beautiful park to visit. Great playground in the park too for children.

Review of Gheluvelt Park, Barbourne, North Worcester.

The challenge of keeping alive the memories of those who have died in warfare after the cessation of hostilities is always an issue and, more so, as the years pass and those alive at the time move on. In this case the name Gheluvelt Park (earlier called: ‘The Barbourne College Recreational Ground’) harks back to World War 1: 1914-1918. That is >100 years ago and long passed the lifetimes of those involved at the time.
The park was formally established in June 1922 in memory of the 180 soldiers of the Worcestershire Regiment who were killed or injured in the crucial Battle of Gheluvelt in October 2014. The regiment successfully recaptured their line position at the village of Gheluvelt close to Ypres in Belgium when they routed the much larger German Army confronting them. This action prevented German forces from reaching the Channel Ports and endangering the British Expeditionary Force.
A plaque close to the main gate into the park commemorates the achievements of the regiment and remembers those involved. The decorative gate was built in 1924 of red brick with cast-iron gate and railings. It was initially intended for the dozen commemorative dwellings for ex-servicemen constructed on the north side of the park before being relocated for use as a gate into the park. At one time a military tank was located in the park next to the houses, but it was eventually removed.
A century later WW1 has faded into the history of the nations/people involved – not surprisingly given the many wars that have subsequently followed – with the park re-imagined as a memorial for those lost during all wars. In 2010 a new war memorial comprising a series of circular steel arrangements was established in the SE corner of the park.
The park straddles Barbourne Brook and is in two separate parts - the formal park to the east, and an informal wildlife conservation area to the west next to the River Severn. For all its mixed heritage remembering wars, the park has become an important recreational asset for the people of north Worcester.
Those origins and the historical military tragedy that it represents fades into the background on a warm summer day in August. We knew nothing of the park, it was a first visit and we were there to enjoy the openness of the park, the sky overhead and the pleasures of simply being … the park was a delight - bright green foliage everywhere and all those public amenities that you tend to take for granted in well-managed parks. There were places for the kids to play – in/out of the water, a bunch of exercise points scattered along the pathways, flower gardens, shrubs and lawns – on which there were more kids kicking balls and family groups with picnic bags on hand. There was a lake/pond with an island that contained a band stand.
Many of these people had come to enjoy the live music that afternoon – music under the sun in an uncrowded peaceful setting. There were even a handful of people standing some of whom were dancing modestly (well, moving to the music) to one side of the tent in which the sextet was playing – guitar, drums and wind instruments.
Behind the people sitting on the grass listing to the music was the Splashpad – 340 m2 of run-through sprays/fountains, basins, channels and rocks – in a novel playground that would suit kids of all ages – with a surrounding security fence. Open during the summer months it featured a large ‘Singapore-like’ information board that highlighted what you could not do (i.e. large red circles each with a diagonal cross – no wheels, dogs, food, etc.) and it then went on to tell you that everything else was OK when it was supervised by your friendly adult.
The name ‘Gheluvelt’ persisted, however, and we had to explore further - reading the commemorative plaques/information in the park and, later courtesy of Mr Google, learning more of the story. Therein the reality of WW1 and the futility of 9M soldiers killed, 23M wounded and, in addition, an estimated 5M non-combatants killed. Millions more were also killed as the result of the associated civil strife, genocide and internal revolutions catalysed by the war in Europe. Not forgetting ‘Spanish flu’. The zealous persecution of the vanquished in this war – the ‘War to end all wars’ - led directly to the greater conflict of the Second World War little more than 20 years later. A well-managed and much appreciated municipal park is a fitting legacy to the loss of those original Worcestershire soldiers. Least we forget.

I was in my way to Worcester races, but was a little bit early, so I popped along to Gheluvelt Park for a while.
Lovely just to sit and watch the world go by, it’s such a clean and tidy park, with so much colour.
Worth a visit.

This park has something for everyone, from peaceful early morning walks to family fun and picnics. The park is amazingly clean and well maintained and has some great points of interest including the Battle of Gheluvelt memorial sculpture and the beautiful bandstand. The children's playground is well equipped and always busy whenever I have visited the park. This park is one of my favourite places to walk!
