Once a private estate with a large house built in 1836 Evington Park was opened as a public park in 1946.
In spring Rhododendron and Azalea beds are a delight and the wildlife ponds and meadows attract a wide variety of wildlife which can be enjoyed throughout the summer. Wooden sculptures amongst the trees and shrubs also add interest to the park.
The park has a variety of trees including an avenue of disease resistant elms which it is hoped will start to replace the enormous loss of elm trees due to Dutch elm disease in the 1970s.
