  • I'm so pleased that I wrote the first review of John Coles Park and I am delighted that so many others have shared their enthusiasm since. We are getting to know some of the dogs quite well - and (eve...  more »

  • Great park with a good mix of play equipment. A few trees for shade for sitting under. There's a fence all the way around the play area, so no worries about absent minded little ones wandering off. The play equipment for little children and big children is all in one area - great if you're visiting with a number of children of different ages. Splash pad is also fenced. Not as big as some splash pads, but still enough to have fun. Nice ice creams. Reasonable toilets. Car park not really big enough for sunny day numbers, but on-street parking available.
  • The splash pad is a favorite of our kids in the summer, and there is lots of space to run around and play. Great for a family afternoon out, and not too far from the shops. Parking is an issue if you're trying to use the official car park - but on road parking at the top of the park is plentiful!
  • Lovely little park in Chippenham, has a great play area for Children and even a water play area in the summer, dogs are allowed off the lead in most areas of the park and plenty of room to play. Has a small outside cafe with low prices. If you are in the area worth a trip but parking tight and not great if you have anything bigger than an estate or SUV
  • Lovely park for the kids & dog.. made even better as you can stop for a drink/snack at the wooden hut.
  • This park is so well maintained and caters for everyone. Dog walkers can let dogs off the lead or exercise them in a fenced off area at the top of the park. Families can play in the grass central area and they have bands playing on a Sunday throughout summer. The playground area is clean and kept in fantastic order and there is a splash park for little ones which is great in the summer. There are clean toilet facilities and an outdoor cafe serving a variety of items and tea and coffee in proper mugs. There are courts and a bowling green too. There is a small car park for the park which can get busy, but there are no yellow lines down Malmesbury Road by the two other gates. Wishes for the future....1) would be great for it to be open later in winter.....it is hard to find somewhere you feel safe to walk dogs in the dark and I am sure so any people would use it/pay a small fee to access via 1 gate in the evenings in winter so they could let their dogs off the lead. 2) Shelters by the splash pad to protect little ones from the sun as there is no shade there at all 3) Sheltered seating for the cafe...people visit the park in all weathers and would happily sit outside in the rain with a cup of tea if there was some shelter. :-)
