A beautiful park that is quickly gaining recognition after some wonderful improvements. The park's reputation has been building rapidly as volunteers and Friends of Lilford Park continue to make it a safe and beautiful place to visit.

Totally love this park. The walk through the woods is beautiful and so well kept. Very dog friendly with big fields where they can be let off the lead. The park is excellent for children and very clean. Would highly recommend.

Nice park. Spent many hours here when the kids were younger, watching them on the good range of swings and slides. However in the forest at the back is a great MTB jump. Worth a look if you're cycling past on the guided busway !
