Hodgkin Park

Hodgkin Park is in two parts, separated by Armstrong Road. The north part is smaller and feels quieter whereas the southern part is more open.

The south park was refurbished in 2012/13 to include a new children’s play area, performance area, multi-use games area and water features.

Opening times

Hodgkin Park is open at all times.
