Found this lovely, little park as we walked up into the village off the boat that we moored by the pub. Made a welcoming entrance to Long Buckby - what a very good, community idea :)

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

I often walk into Long Buckby and when I do I usually visit the Pocket Park. I like to sit by the pond, eat my lunch then walk home. It's a quiet place to sit and think, watch for newts and generally re charge. A...More

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.
