Home Parks Kingsmead

Kingsmead

This is a small area of parkland and woodland, which connects the North Bucks Way into the parks system via Tattenhoe and Westcroft. It is an ideal place to visit if you live in one of the nearby residential areas. The surrounding land is currently being developed into housing, so is likely to change considerably over the coming years.

What to see and What to do

Don’t miss

There is a good play area in the southwestern section of Kingsmead park which is maintained by The Parks Trust. Suitable for children of all ages, the pieces of equipment travel down the length of the park.

Kingsmead Spinney is a great place for amphibians and reptiles, with grass snakes often spotted there. Noctule bats are also known to roost in the wood.
