Knighton Park

Knighton Park 2019

This beautiful and popular 78 acre park has become one of the city's most popular feature.

Further information

Trees are a strong feature of the park with avenues of laburnum close to the Spinney, gingko (maidenhair) avenue in the Heath Garden and a charming path bordered by magnolias across the middle of the park.

The Wash (or Saffron) brook provides a haven for wildlife as does the enclosed spinney which was designated a wildlife reserve for all time in 1932 and is now a local Nature reserve.
