Nice little park, plenty of shade, some of the equipment on the play park is a bit tricky for under 5's, toilet facilities are poor

Nice park but suffers as a teenage hangout. The tennis courts used to be good until they became a multi purpose area now you have kids trying to play football over tennis nets so its useless for anything!

A little bit flooded when we visited, but it is a lovely park with lots of Canada geese and some white ducks. Flowers had started to bloom, but I imagine it is much more colourful in the Summer months. Plenty for children to do here and a splash pool in the warmer months !

St. Oswald's is a lovely town Church, right in the centre of Ashbourne. The Clergy and congregation are very welcoming to visitors, as they were to us when we moved to Ashbourne this year. The church is very interesting and the graveyard is a picture in the Spring, with thousands of snowdrops and other bulbs.

This park is well maintained by experienced groundsman. There is a loverly play area with benchs to have a picnick or a rest. There is also a splash pool on there working in summer but it gets switched of in winter i think end of October time. Dogs are not allowed on the play area and no smoking is allowed... More

This is a super local park with plenty of green space, seating if you need it and plenty of room for ball games, walking the dog or just sitting and enjoying the peace and tranquility.
