Best Public Parks Croydon

There is so much you can do at the park. Parks are great for jogging and walking. You can play football, cricket and other sports, and also ride bikes around. Young children and older people may enjoy relaxing nature walks and wildlife spotting experiences. Parents and children can also make use of the district’s many playgrounds.

Croydon’s local authorities have recently invested millions in local leisure centres, parks and public facilities. There is more reason than ever to plan a day out in the best public parks Croydon.

Wandle Valley Regional Park

The local council has big plans for Wandle Park. It has received major investment from the National Lottery fund and also from local community budgets. This will be used to landscape the park, and also to establish new activity areas and facilities. Ducks, swans and geese live on the park’s large lake. Little ones will love feeding the birds.

The Wandle Valley Park contains a number of cycle trails and footpaths. They pass the nature reserve itself, and the lake. The extended routes also pass through local woodland and along the canal. Information on walking groups and guided walks, and on park facilities, can be found at wandlevalleypark.co.uk. Keep an eye out for the Wandle Park totem. This is a beautiful owl sculpture which was created by Croydon Clayworks, with input from the community.

Addington Park

Parents and their children can find plenty to do in the Addington district of Croydon. The New Addington Leisure Centre has just been refurbished and now also includes a fantastic multi-lane swimming pool. Nearby Addington Park is a 25 acre green space with a large children’s playground. The Archbishop of Canterbury once had a summer home in the park so the area is designated as a historical interest site. It is easily reached from most parts of Croydon because of the Addington Interchange tram and bus services.

Addiscombe Recreation Ground

The Addiscombe Park in Croydon is great for kids because it has a large playground. The playpark contains slides, climbing frames and other fun equipment. Addiscombe Park is also ideal for sports enthusiasts. Adults and children can make use of the park’s five-a-side and seven-a-side football pitches, and also the basketball and tennis courts.
