Known locally as the Lido, Crownest Park is a medium sized park close to the centre
The park comprises mown grass, a good quality grass sports pitch, and a modern play
area. An extensive naturalistic pond adds interest and biodiversity. Crossed by
a wooden walkway allowing ample opportunity for watching the wildlife, as well as interpretation
boards describing the birds and other wildlife associated with the habitat.
A good network of bitmac paths cross the site providing links between the shops and
amenities to the north, and the nearby housing.
Crownest Park is one of six local parks accorded Queen Elizabeth Field status by
the charity Fields In Trust who work to safeguard open spaces for communities.
