Astley Park

Adventure through the scenic parkland

The park stretches out over 43.75 hectares and offers families, friends, the young and the old a great day out. As you walk from one side to the other, you will find several walkways that lead you to beautiful woodlands where you can spot the snowdrop trail or stumble amongst the summer flowers. Why not make a pit stop on your way through the park and take in the views of the wildlife living in the pond with the beautiful fountain as the backdrop – perfect for a picturesque photo.


As you venture further into the park you will also find sport pitches, tennis courts and a bowling green, all available to use by the public. There are also some very exciting playgrounds, including the Royalists Retreat and toddler play areas which will keep your children entertained for hours. Next to the Royalists Retreat is a special Pets Corner which introduces children to small fluffy animals, reptiles and birds.


Perfect for a summer day out, you can pack up your picnic and find your perfect spot to enjoy the summer sun.
