Gunpowder park walk 31

Gunpowder Park

Went walking here with Gina and Axl. Very pretty.


Visit the Green Flag award winning park with an explosive history!

Once upon a time they tested munitions here, and visits were not recommended! But today Gunpowder Park has been transformed into an exciting new country park where people, wildlife and the arts coexist in a rather more peaceful environment.

If you’re a cyclist or walker you’ll love the network of all-weather paths, and a permissive bridleway welcomes horse riders through the summer months.

The Park is also home to a state-of-the-art, environmentally friendly field station. This amazing building with its grass roof reflects the Park’s industrial heritage, and offers flexible workspaces and meeting rooms for all manner of groups. You’ll find ample parking here, and eco-friendly loos with disabled access, flushed by collected rainwater!
