Afternoon stroll

It’s a very quiet park with lots of swans canal boats and a play area. Not very big to walk around though.

Fantastic

To think that Becket’s park is right in Northampton town center considering how quiet the park was is mildly surprising. It is a traditional park alongside the bank of the River Nene. It has the canal running through and you can watch the barges passing by.

The park has large open areas and a small play area for the little ones. The marina is next to the park and can be viewed after crossing a bridge.

Ok Park

Northampton is full of parks, large and small, this is a smaller park, close to town centre, so on a pleasant weather day is nice to sit in and have a snack.

I said to a friend of mine to visit this place, as she was in Northampton. It was raining that particular day. So hopefully next time she'll visit with her kids. As it is a peaceful and easy to get too. I love it around here🙂

A nice little park in the town centre
Aug 2017 • Family
Becket's park is well within the town centre and hence basically it is a not a country park but a park within town.
It is very good for a short walk after shopping (You have Morrisons just next door, NHS opposite this park)
It has river Nene flowing through, can see some boats, ducks
Nice way to spend time with kids playing within town centre

A Rubbish Park
May 2018 • Couples
This park is not a park, its a rubbish tip, the bins were over flowing,too many of certain type of person hanging around.. I would not feel safe in this area, the play area looks okay for mum's and their kids, but other than that... not what I call a park....

Gone to the Dogs......
May 2018 • Couples
Took a walk along from the bridge at Far Cotton, before the recent floodings, and walked along in the sunshine to make our way to Beckets Park, but found the whole way along by the canal, to be full of rubbish, cans of beer, bottles, and bags of rubbish everywhere.. If Northampton is going to spend money on areas in Northampton, then please be bothered to clean these places up... there was evidence of rough sleepers too...
Don't even get me started on the amount of dog poo, owner's please pick up after your dogs, we don't let our 2 year old, poo on the pavement then walk away, so you should'nt, have some decency about you, the marina looks like an over run car park for boats, I will not be going that way again for a walk, it is a disgrace the way its going to the dogs again......

Lovely Park

On a recent visit to Northampton, stopped at this park for some fresh air and a leg stretch. It was a fine sunny day and this park was well kept, clean and close to the town and shopping - so its good to have a snack. Very Peaceful.
