  • We love to jog or fast walk round the park. Beautiful, clean, well laid out greenery. Myself and my partner Theo visit the refurbished Cafe almost daily inside Locke Park. After we have jogged we go and the food is great, tasty, fresh and healthy. Lovely clean refurbished cafe, great service and lots of choice. Jeana Hallas
  • Great park, with full working toilets. If your out for a walk or kids to play it's Fantastic either way. Even more so if you drop on a event day. We went to the bubble rush 5km fun run. Wow, kids loved it and the people loved it. Community coming together and raising money for our local charity (barnsley hospice) Highly recommend on event and social calendar
  • A nice venue that's only ruined by irresponsible dog owners (a minority) who fail to clean up after their pets. Plenty of open space to play or picnic.
  • I am a massive fan of Locke Park! It's an absolutely gorgeous place I visit often as lots of space for kids and dogs and a lovely play area for the kids with sand, swings, slides, climbing frames and everything else... cafe is nice but pricey... Try out Park Run every Saturday at 0900 or Junior Park Run for the kiddos on Sunday.
  • The sun was shinning and it was very warm so we couldn't have asked for a nicer day out for the family. We will definitely be going again. There's also a cafe next to the play area.
