The hardest park by far to find! But once you know it is one you won't forget! Not a big park, ideal for an hour or so after school.

⏰ Time spent
1hour ish in the park, 30 minutes walking around the fields behind. Similar time walking around the village.
By far the hardest park I’ve ever had to find. I parked near the church. Walked across the busy a509 ( there is a traffic light crossing ) walked towards the bus stop ( next to the old bear & beignet building ) there is a dirt track and a sign. Follow the dirt track which is between houses and feels like your going the wrong way. At the top right there is a style climb over OR go through the metal gates if you have a pushchair. Walk through the wildish field and it’s tucked away on the left!
No toilets, bench plenty of room to sit on the grass in summer
Not the biggest parks but fairly new equipment and hidden which is nice. The play area has a toddler slide and climbing frame with a giant metal structure which my youngest liked crawling through! 2 baby swings for younger visitors as well. There is a slide with climbing parts, and a second smaller slide. There was also a climbing frame aimed more towards older children and 4 swings. There is some horses in the field that you can see - but please do not feed them! The best part for my kids was the skate park! Although we didn’t have scooters or skateboards they actually spent most of their time running up the half pipe! Dangerous but fun! If you fancied a field walk directly behind the park is a gap and you can walk across the fields. At the moment Isham has been yarn bombed! The residents have decorated their front gardens, trees, walls in yarn! It looks like it’s taken lots of effort and we saw flower Theme and under the sea theme! Really cute idea and nice to walk round.
🌻 Mother tripper tips
NO dogs inside the play area I believe but the area behind is very dog friendly. I did see a lady walking her dog through the park, The plan was to team this visit with a trip to Whythmails again, but the walk is 30 minutes and the road didn’t look idea for young children.
