“Basic & honest town park that is very popular”
Review of Abington Park

Abington Park
Ranked #6 of 81 things to do in Northampton
Certificate of Excellence
Attraction details
Reviewed November 25, 2013

This place is really popular with families. It’s free and you can park easily around it – unless it’s a warm sunny day – it gets busy!

There is just enough to interest the casual visitor, and the museum is very good considering the location and history of the area.

There is also a cafe which is average/basic but is welcome for drinks or ice creams.

Lots of old trees, and wide open spaces. There are two small connected 'lakes' which you can walk around. The bandstand often has bands on a Sunday afternoon.
The trees are stunning in Autumn, but otherwise it's just a nice place to go on a hot summer's afternoon.
The open air theatre next door is quite fun.

This park really ticks all the boxes! Lovely and big to walk or cycle round, a big play area for the kids, cafe, museum, animals / birds need I go on??
And it's free!! Definitely worth a visit if you are looking for something to do whatever the weather.
