Manor Fields is a hidden gem which lies just off City Road and covers 17 hectares of community green space. A mixture of formally managed recreation areas and naturalistic landscape, its development has been key to the regeneration of the local area.
There are plenty of opportunities for play, to get fit, enjoy the wildlife or just sit on one of the many benches and take in the pleasant surroundings. With ponds, streams, open grass areas, stone features and flower meadows there is lots to see and do.
For exploring, the park has over 4km of wide hard-standing paths accessible for wheelchairs, pushchairs and mobility scooters, as well as smaller paths to help you explore the wilder, hidden areas.
At the head of the park, by the car park is York House - Manor Fields community hub.
Mainly run by volunteers, it houses a clothes boutique, community garden, toddler group and is the focal point of much the activity on the park.
It welcome’s visitors but isn’t open every day so check the website for times of open house sessions, workshops and events.
