Mossdale Meadows

Mossdale Meadows is one of our larger parks, and hosts our yearly Summer Fete. It is quite a varied park, with a good range of sports equipment and pitches, as well as plenty of natural areas.

The main entrance is off the Kingsway itself, with a decent sized car park available. Next to the car park there is a childrens play area, and a multi use games area including a skateboard area and a basketball court.

Further into the park, there is a changing room and numerous football pitches.

For the nature lovers, a small brook runs through the park, and there are a huge amount of wooded areas and natural areas around the park. A woodland walk eventually connects to the Osiers nature reserve.

Mossdale Meadows also connects to Merrileys Park, a natural woodland and wildlife area. 

I've seen quite a lot of foxes and rabbits around the meadows, and quite a few fruit trees, including damsons, apples and pears. Blackberry picking is great too!

In total, the park is 9.51 hectares / 23.5 acres in total.

To reach the park by car, your best option will be the Kingsway entrance, which has a small car park.


By bus, the park is quite close to a major bus route - the Arriva 104 stops on the Kingsway a short walk away from the main entrance.
