Description |

Sharpness Picnic Area is one of those special secret places that exist. Tucked at the end of the Gloucester Canal where it enters the River Severn adjacent to Sharpness Docks, it offers up a wonderful opportunity to relax and view the River Severn and the Severnside town and villages which mirror far beyond and along the opposite bank.

Stop to gaze awhile or bring a picnic. There's plenty of benches to perch upon or lean on the fence overlooking the river bank. Or consider the harbour with the canal which runs past it. The wooden piers offer great landing spots for seabirds that glide in and then out. On a sunny evening, time just rolls by.
