We ventured further afield than just the park grounds, across the fields and through the woods ... Lovely afternoon. The park cafe offered fresh sandwiches, baguettes and a lot more - the children's meals were adventurous - not just nuggets & chips. Will be back in the summer with kids and a picnic

A great place with the ability to lose yourself in a huge park with well marked paths, BBQ spaces for hire, an historic house to visit if you want and lovely woodland to view. Could not be a better spot. The cafe is worth a visit as well. I would go and visit. I do every two weeks or so.

This is a nice park to visit in Swindon. To be honest Swindon does not have a great reputation for places to visit, however if you are local and you have never been there, it is worth visiting. Car parking is normally free and there is a good park for the kids.

We visit this park often because it's such a lovely place to be. There's lots of free parking and two different places to have a drink or a snack. The woods are a lovely place to walk whatever the season, with bridges across the lakes and streams and plenty of squirrells to watch. The church in the grounds is small,... More

Really nice place for walking. Lots of tree-lined paths and a big pond full of birds. There's also a historic house and gardens which is meant to be very good - I've not been inside (additional charge). There's a Park Run here on Saturdays, and many running events are held here on Sundays. They're always well organised and attended. Also... More

Lydiard Park is a ideal place to take the children any time of the year. It has a children's adventure play area which in the summer gets very busy. In the autumn you can take one of the many walks around the Park and collect acorns and leaves with the children or take your dog for a walk, or you... More

plenty of free parking make this a wonderful place for a sunday afternoon walk. the large lake with its ducks and swans are very picturesque and there are lawns for a picnic, BBQ's that can be booked and children's playgrounds as well as a cafe.
