A 10-acre public park with a rich history, from the beginnings of cricket with Thomas Lord in the 18th century to WW2 bomb damage. Wartime devastation was followed by prefab housing before the park was created in the 1960s.
In recent times the Friends of Barnard Park have created three new gardens and planted hundreds of bulbs. There are many challenges. Come and see what can be done in a very long border under an avenue of lime trees.
The park has large grassy areas for sunbathing or picnicking and a large games pitch.
