Park Information

The Moatfield is an historic site that dates back to medieval times. It was once the site of a medieval manor house called Bournehall which was completely surrounded by a large moat. Although the house is no longer there, the name is remembered in the name of local streets such as Bournehall Lane, Bourne Road, Moatfield Road and the adjacent Bournehall School.

The site has been identified as an Area of Archaeological Significance because of its size and good preservation. Various archaeological surveys have been carried out on the site.

The play area was extended in 2011 and includes a zip wire, small kick about area with goal units, mounds connected by a bridge, nest swing, climbing unit, spinning dish, Duel swing and an obstacle course (monkey bars, stepping logs, climbing net and boulders).

There is also a series of resistance outdoor fitness equipment including a kickboxing pillar.
