  • Lovely local park. Allesley Park is a wonderful green space with plenty to do for all ages. The park has a play area suitable for children of all ages. There is also a mini golf and pitch and putt course. The park is surrounded by a path which is just over a mile in length ideal for walking or running, there are also paths that cross the park for shorter routes. On top of this there is regularly an ice cream van and a car park. Allesley park is well worth a visit.
  • Local park. Segregated play areas - big kids and little kids/toddlers. Pitch and putt golf course one side, old, slightly tired crazy gold on the other side. nice walking routes and a locally maintained "fairy trail" hidden somewhere in a wooded section of the walk. Clean and well maintained in the majority.
  • Fantastic park clean and friendly people. Lots of wild flowers. Goid play area's for kids and golf and and putting green i highly recommend it .
  • Nice park. Has pitch and putt golf and nice children's play area.

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.
