About the Park
Although the park has considerably changed since, due to extensive tree clearance to convert the park to an airfield and use for aircraft construction during the Second World War, remnants of its former glory still remain, including a huge veteran horse chestnut tree.
Today the park is 67 hectares in size and large parts are comprised of lowland dry acid grassland, which is an important biodiversity habitat. The park is designated as a Site of Local Nature Conservation of Borough Importance (Grade II), together with the Longford River that flow through part of the site.
The park is also widely used by the large, surrounding residential population and there are a number of sporting and recreation opportunities available in the Park, including walking, jogging, cycling, football and rugby. There is also an active Friends Group associated with the Park.
