A beautiful village park very well maintained and looked after by the residents of the village.

There is no parking, the lane is narrow in parts so if you are parking please park respectfully. I parked in the village opposite the Snooty Fox pub and we walked through the village to the park. It’s a 10 minute drive from Kettering.
No toilets. A good amount of tables and benches around perfect for picnics in the summer. They even have BBQs!
Positioned in rolling countryside it was lovely seeing the horses trotting past. There seems to be many walks around the area and we took a route behind the pocket park across the field to a bridge with a beautiful fast flowing stream. Perfect for Pooh sticks! I imagine in the summer this is a lovely spot for a paddle. I think that’s what I liked so much by it. Even at the park itself there is an area behind the equipment which looked great for den building. For play equipment there are 2 baby swings and 2 older swings. A roundabout which seats 4 and can reach some epic speeds! There is a small climbing frame, slide and some sit on bouncy thingys! There is a fantastic wooden climbing frame across 2 levels which has a climbing wall, monkey bars, ladders and slides. It was perfect for a 2 year old to climb but also challenging enough for my 5 year old. Football pitch with two goals. Although it isn’t a paved park they have had 2 gates of entry fitted one steps and another a ramp for pushchairs and wheelchair users which I thought was very thoughtful.
🌻 Mother tripper tips
Take wellies for now the walk around the park is muddy. Please be respectful of the equipment it’s a very pretty park and after a quick Google it is all maintained by the villagers. I have tried to find a donation page for it but haven’t found one yet. Strictly NO dogs inside the park.
