Parks in Stroud

We’ve done the leg work for you and have visited a few of our favourite parks in Stroud and the surrounding villages to check out what’s on offer. Discovering a new place to go for a quick run around or to spend the entire day is an exciting prospect (especially when you have access to hot tea and coffee – Horsley park I’m looking at you)
If you fancy a change, or are looking for somewhere new to take the kids, here is a run down of a few of our favourite parks in the Stroud area –

Parks in Stroud

Summer Crescent, Stroud
Set back off the main road behind an estate of houses, Summer Crescent park is almost a hidden gem. Enough equipment for younger and older children, the park has a wooden obstacle course, a fort, a climbing frame plus some great apparatus for little ones. Find out more

Horsley park, Horsley
You could quite easily spend the entire day at Horsely park. Attractive wooden equipment including a fort plus a sandpit that can keep children entertained for hours. Set behind the fort is a basket ball court and small nature area.. and the best bit is it’s situated right next to Horsley village shop, full of essential everyday bits including ice creams and cake!
