Park Information

The Leisure Centre and Gym is located here, together with a combination of senior and junior football pitches, a running track with free to use equipped community fitness zones and lovely walks through the open space. 

There is also a popular walk from Sworders Field in the town centre across Grange Paddocks along the River Stort and through woodland and meadowland into Red, White and Blue Open space. 

Two new separate play areas have recently been installed in the open space by the Leisure Centre - an enclosed younger children's play area and an adjacent but separate area for older children with interactive electronic play equipment and a new table tennis table. 

The Community Fitness Trail has three workout fitness stations located at points on the marked grass running track around the open space.   

There are also opportunities for geocaching within the park.
