A small haven near the pretty village of Long Buckby, its a good place for a walk or just sit and relax, there's a nice pond and a few benches to sit on.

Loved this little hideaway, the pocket park is a fab place to chill out and gather your thoughts or to share a picnic with family or friends. It's free to visit and great in all seasons

Great to get outdoors and see some of the wildlife, the park has an abundance of water frontage, ponds and some great projects on the go. Well worth a visit.
