This is a traditional public park situated on the west side of town. Beautifully maintained, it was created in 1920 from a 5 acre meadow, surrounded on three sides by the River Test.

Perfect for a stroll or to sit and enjoy one of the regular concerts in the Bandstand, the park’s facilities include a café, lawn bowls club, fishing, formal gardens, inclusive children’s playground, tennis courts, toilets and seating. The tennis is free and the café lend out rackets and balls.
