Frimley Park in Hastings is an 'Old English' style reserve noted for its many beautiful and rare trees and more than 5500 roses set out in formal gardens.
The park also has sports fields catering for football and cricket (see field maps below), a picnic area with tables, a petanque court (BYO boules), and a playground.
The play area is specially designed to suit all mobilities. Children are drawn into different play zones through the use of brightly coloured astro-turf that separates each area. This vibrant use of colour and textured surfacing is also designed to help those with poor vision or learning disabilities. Play equipment includes bongo drums, talk tubes, wheelchair-friendly roundabout, swings, slides, rope climb and scooter path.
On the park’s Frimley Rd boundary is the Frimley Aquatic Centre, an outdoor swimming complex open over the summer months.
Public toilets: Yes; closed at night (and sports ground toilets open during organised sporting events only)
Accessibility: Frimley Park has a number of play opportunities where users can play side by side while spinning, swinging, playing music and sand play without the need of being transferred from a wheelchair. The playground surfacing has also been designed to help with navigation around the playground with the bold colours indicating activity areas.
Entrances: The entrances to the park are off Frimley Rd and Lyndhurst Rd.
Maintenance and development programmes for this reserve are governed by the Frimley Park Reserve Management Plan.
