Knighton Park

Knighton Park 2019

This beautiful and popular 78 acre park has colourful shrub borders, pond, rock garden, two well-equipped play areas and a three-hole FootGolf course.

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.

In addition to the Spinney there are newly planted lime woods, a beech wood and willow wood.
