The Park was given to the town by Mr Horace Brueton in 1944, which was formally part of Malvern Hall and the two Parks were linked in 1963.
The conservation area in Brueton Park received Local Nature Reserve status in 2002 in recognition for the Park's importance for wildlife. The Park contains the River Blythe Site of Special Scientific Interest (SSSI) and Woodland, designated in 1989 by English Nature. The woods are important for oak, ash and alder trees as well as a carpet of wildflowers.
This painting was inspired by the many walks I had in my childhood, and subsequently going there with my own children. This location is a favorite for dog lovers, you are lucky to come upon there without any dogs playing in the river scaring off the wildlife. In my childhood, I would paddle, with my fishing net in hope to land something, huge! It brings back fond memories of a long lost childhood, climbing over the logs, falling into the River Blythe coming back home muddy
