About Your Park

During the late 2000s nearly £4m was spent on improving Markfield Park with funding secured through various sources including the Heritage Lottery Fund, Football Foundation, DCLG and Big Lottery Fund. This has left a great legacy of various facilities and amenities, for people of all ages, that are still popular and well-used.

Markfield Project

The Markfield Project is located.It was established in 1979 by parents of disabled children, to support and empower families with disabled children. It became a charity and limited company in 1983.

Latest Projects

A new pay-and-play floodlit multi-use games area (MUGA) has recently been built next to the sports pavilion. It is marked with a six-a-side football pitch, two mini tennis courts and netball courts. It's used by local schools during the days and for club booking some evenings. It will be available for public pay-and-play use within the coming months.

Photos show a before and after view of the floodlit multi-use games area:

Another recent addition to the park is the outdoor gym which was added next to the picnic area in 2019.

The heritage of the park is also preserved within the Markfield Beam Engine and Museum (external link).

There is a conservation garden - a number of local organisations and individuals are trying to rejuvenate this by turning it into a community garden, developed and cared for by the local community.

The Friends of Markfield Park take an active involvement in all aspects of the park. Why not join and help our park become a cleaner, greener and safer place!
