This is a lovely open space to enjoy a sunday walk. As part of a day exploring the town and castle it is well worth visiting. Its hard not to imagine Henry VIII hunting deer on the park.

Wonderful safe walking area for you and your dog, with beach areas for both. A useful cafe with loos on site for snacks, cold drinks, icecreams or a cuppa. An easy walk from Tilford Wood Lodges.

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.
