Facilities at Kingsmead
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.
Although a small section of woodland, it is really valuable from a conservation point of view Kingsmead Wood is probably remnant piece of ancient woodland and has been in existence for many centuries, that has some fantastic veteran Oak and Ash trees within it. During survey work undertaken in 2017 species of very rare beetle were also discovered in the wood
There is no dedicated car park available at the wood, although parking is available on nearby residential streets.
There are no public toilets in the park.
The paths in the spinney itself are fairly flat and easy to traverse, however many of the kerbs into the parkland are not dropped, which could make disabled access difficult.
