Little stream kids enjoy playing in or catching tiny fish in. Pretty walk. Ice cream shop available. Free parking on roads nearby. Would recommend spending 1-2 hours here. Nearby to Pets Corner which kids also love. Overall just a nice place to go for a walk or afternoon.

The animals need proper care and looking after. I went today which the weather was 36/oC. I could barely stand in it myself one of the hottest days of the year. Yet they had the animals out with no shade at all, the sheep were kicking the fence in frustration, the reindeers only shade was this metal tin which must have been like an oven and what did they have to cool down? Oh water that was also sitting in the sun which must have been hotter then your normal cup of coffee in the morning. The Shetland pony had no shade at all and was marching up and down beside the fence in desperation. Something needs to change! I spoke to a member of staff and apparently the reindeer’s panting is normal... NO this reindeer was panting like I had never seen before and another one was just standing there in the middle of the gated area giving up the will to live. I hope this post makes a change as the animal welfare is disgusting and unacceptable

We went yesterday (15th July 2020). The car park (£1.10 for 5 hours), toilets, cafe (for takeaway food and drink) and outside animal area were open. The adventure playground, pets corner and paddling pool were closed. There were plenty of picnic tables and benches available. The park is massive with lots of different garden areas to enjoy and plenty of space to play in. The staff were helpful and friendly. We had a brilliant time.

I was not sure what to expect from this place. I didn’t really expect much for a park in the middle of a built up area but I was pleasantly surprised. The water garden was really pretty and I got to take some beautiful pictures. I read that the pets corner was closed which I was sad about but the I went behind the cafe and realised you could still see lots of the animals which was great - so shocked that there was no charge to see them. If I go to Harlow again I will definitely be back.

Spent an hour soaking up some lovely weather and walking through Harlow Town Park. There are lots of verdant, open spaces with benches and walkways. Lots of people appeared to be enjoying the weather too, having picnics or just taking a stroll. During this current pandemic, parking is free of charge but usually operates on a pay-and-display basis.
