Its 320 acres (130 hectares)has retained much of its 17th Parkland character and has the feel of open countryside. It offers Avenues, hidden dells, hills, valleys, ponds and streams. It's elevated position provides panoramic views of Farnham and surrounding countryside.

I enjoy walking through this rolling countryside. It does not take long to leave the busier areas behind and enjoy a walk along prepared tracks. In winter these gravelled paths are a God send!

We live next to park and get a lot of pleasure from walking dog, or just strolling through. We also get pleasure from the many birds and animals that visit our garden that wander over from park.

This hillside park is a great place for a walk and to enjoy views over the town and valley. There is a mix of open spaces and trees with places to rest.

Lovely long avenue of old trees through this park. Wish I’d had a horse to ride because I can’t walk that far anymore. Historical area and fabulous countryside in June.

From Castle Street, turn right onto Park Row and there is a path on the left that heads into the park and the play area is on your right. Hope that helps.
