About Your Park

During the late 2000s a sum of £3.8m was spent on improving Markfield Park with funding secured through various sources including the Heritage Lottery Fund, Football Foundation, DCLG and Big Lottery Fund.

That investment has left the park as a great place for a family day out with a wide range of facilities that suit all ages. There is an all ages playground for under 16s in addition to a playground specifically for under 5s and a skatepark/BMX track. There is a café and park toilets that are open 365 days a year from 9am until 6pm (or later), a multi-use games area (MUGA) and sports pavilion and a picnic area. There are also football pitches which are used by local football clubs. An exciting new addition to the park is the outdoor gym which was added next to the picnic area in 2019. There is also a splendid rose garden in front of the café. As well as providing a spectacular show of blooms in summer it is popular with young children who like to use it to ride scooters and pedal-along-cars.

The heritage of the park is also preserved within the Markfield Beam Engine and Museum (external link). The museum is open to the public on the second Sunday of every month between March and November, from 11am to 4pm.

The next big project in the park is to redevelop the disused bowling green area into a floodlit multi-use games area with provision for tennis, mini tennis, netball, basketball and futsal. Completion is planned in August 2019.

The Friends of Markfield Park take an active involvement in all aspects of the park. To find out more or to join the friends visit the Friends of Markfield Park website (external link).
