6 ways to experience Greenhead Park
With summer fast approaching, why not take the time to enjoy the sun at our wonderful award-winning Greenhead park and its multitudes of activities available every day. Here are the top six activities to do when you get to the park:
Feed the ducks, ride the mini steam train, zip through the playground, go for a paddle, or pull the perfect 360 spin at the skate park – the park has something for all the family.
Have a rocky moment
Whether you are training for your next big fight or just wanting to get fit then Greenhead park is a great place to start. Put on your trainers and go for a gentle stroll, pick up some poles at a Nordic walking session or take part in a park run – a 5K run, walk or shuffle against the clock. You can even build up your strength by using the parks outdoor gym equipment. For that ultimate ‘end of workout high’ – why not run up the steps to the war memorial – (cheering at the end optional).
Pretend you are Andy Murray (or just a Wimbledon spectator)
The tennis courts are usually free – so as long as you have a racket and a few balls you are good to go. Not feeling energetic? With plenty of places to sit, why not pack some strawberries and cream and a little bit of fizz and leave the sweating to someone else.
Channel inner peace
From around the water fountain to the areas overlooking the rose garden there are plenty of calm spots where you can do a spot of Yoga or Thai Chi. Alternatively why not find a nice spot on the grass, open a good book and relax.
Have your cake and eat it
If you are looking for somewhere to meet friends or family then why not visit the beautiful conservatory cafe – this little gem serves light lunches and some truly yummy cakes.
We host some pretty cool events
We’ve been the host to everything from giant veg, to world famous banjo playing musicians. Each year we hire the park out for community and private events so it’s always worth checking out what’s on and getting yourself a ticket to some alfresco entertainment.
