Former Sussex County Cricket Ground
Jun 2021 • Solo
This has been home to occasional County cricket matches from 1858 even before the establishment of the park itself in 1918. Cricket is still played here today in the shadow of the ancient priory church itself in a park bounded by part of the ancient city walls and beneath which two Roman town houses were discovered in May 2017, one containing a hot house and baths.

Rubbish for dogs
Mar 2020 • Family
The most dog unfriendly park !
The gates were open & we hadn’t noticed a sign on the side of the gate , it wasn’t until we went to the lovely café that the owner told us of the ruling & was very sorry for us & said that the dog warden was likely to visit as he hadn’t already been ,
It wasn’t a beautifully landscaped park & really would have been fine to allow dogs on leads & certainly not in the children’s park .
The town is fabulous , so do visit but don’t bother with the Priory Park .

Pleasant enough

Worth a visit if you are walking around the walls and there's a decent playground if you have young children.

When of the best places to go and relax in Chichester!
Very picturesque, can watch (or even learn to play) bowls, cricket, wonderful cafe in the park. No dogs are allowed in the park, so can children are safe from fear of dog bites, or dogs much and there's a great kiddies play area as well

Great park
Apr 2019 • Family
You could easily spend a couple of hours here with the kids. Plenty of grass for a picnic or there is a cafe, a stones throw away.

Historic park in centre
Apr 2019
Lovely park in the centre of Chichester surrounded in part by the cities a Roman walls.
It is used as a cricket pitch during the summer, and last winter there was a trial ice rink set up there.
There is a small cafe for refreshments open at peak times.
The outline of the castle motte is still visible in the centre. A chapel forms the central feature of the park, and this can provide a very nice wedding venue, especially with the Harbour hotel within touching distance.

an open space in the city centre
Mar 2019 • Couples
The park is now more of a cricket pitch, bowling green and kiddies' playground than anything pretty. The key point is the walk along the city wall which goes right alongside the park edge. And don't miss poor old Neptune minus his trident outside the cricket pavilion!
