Description

The park occupies about 9 acres of land between Huntingtree Road and Thornhill Road opposite Huntingtree Primary School. There are a variety of deciduous trees around the perimeter of the park and a small Urban Forest at the corner of Thornhill Road and Huntingtree Road.

The park has full size and junior football pitches. Under the Healthy Towns Project the children’s play area, with junior and infant equipment, has been upgraded and one of the tennis courts converted to a Multi Games Court. The remaining tennis court will have a permanent net and both courts are to be resurfaced.

The football pitch has had a major new drainage system installed and been reseeded and will be ready for use in the autumn.

The new Healthy Hub building is the centre of a variety of activities designed to improve the health of the local community. The Park Rangers have an office there and the kitchen and community room are available for planned healthy based activities. Toilets are open during the day. Changing rooms and showers are available for visiting football teams.

The paths have been widened and resurfaced and new seats installed.

Schools and local children’s associations use the park for games activities and picnics, as do family groups.

The bowling green area is delightful, surrounded by spring flower beds and flowering shrubs, provided by the ‘Friends’ group and planted by local primary school children.

The bowling club is very well supported and visitors and new members are most welcome. An annual competition sponsored by the ‘Friends’ takes place in the summer.

The new improvements to the park make it a very attractive and enjoyable space for everyone to enjoy.
