Thanks to the partnership with Friends of Hopwood Park, the park now boasts:

  • Modern play area for older children with a picnic area nearby.
  • Multi-use games areas and a bowling green.
  • Younger kids play area.
  • Wildflower meadow, floral features and a mini orchard.
  • New path around the park so you can go for a stroll round.
  • New drainage scheme which feeds into a new wildlife pond. This means the main field is now good to use for informal recreation all year round, not just in dry weather.
  • Temporary café hut open every afternoon in the summer holidays.
  • Regular events and activities in the park, especially over the summer holidays.

History of Hopwood Park

Hopwood Park was created over a period of time.

Edward Robert Gregge-Hopwood sold the land to us in sections between 1909 and 1928. The sale included covenants to protect the land for recreational use.
