  • This is a nicely laid out park and it's a pleasant place to have a stroll. It's rarely as busy as the other parks in Coventry so worth seeking out.  more »
  • Did the murder mystery from 'Treasure Trails' around this park and surrounding areas, very peaceful and enjoyable.  more »
  • Really big playpark here which amused my kids for hours, despite the cold. Big space to wander around and the fairy houses are cute to watch the kids in.  more »

  • Great park and play area‚Äč for children. Good open space, well maintained. A little cafe would make it perfect although it does get the ice cream van and you can buy cans of pop from golf house.
  • Great park for the kids including a walking/running perimeter. Pitch and putt is good but can do with a regular cut, if you get in the rough you won't find the ball :-)
  • Very nice park. Plenty to do. Free parking, buy only a few places. So visit early!
  • Great place to have a walk through the park on the tarmac paths. Plenty for the kids to do as there a play area for older and younger ones. There also a grazy golf course which u can hire club n balls to play. Plenty of greenery to play football or walk the dog.
  • Great place for dog walking and a play area for children

Where to stay in Coventry

A stay among the Gothic and Victorian architecture of the city center is within walking distance of the main attractions. Consider a rental room or B&B on the medieval Spon Street or near the canal. Both locations are scenic and conveniently located near the city center. Full of local eateries and shops, the Earlsdon area offers less expensive apartment rentals.
