Local Parks & Gardens

Prospect Park

Liebenrood Rd, Reading RG30 2ND, UK – 0118 937 3045

I love this park in the West of Reading. It has a nice playground for kids, dedicated areas to play football, tennis, basketball, table tennis, ramps for skating / cycling, internal paved paths, a pond with ducks, a restaurant, bowling green and there's plenty of parking. Not everything is in the same area so worth checking the map if going for the first time or looking for something specific.

Brilliant park with plenty of open space. Great for walking your dog or simply for having a leisurely stroll. There is a really nice play area for children and if you fancy a drink and / or a bite to eat then you can visit the restaurant in the old mansion house at the top of the park. Great views from here incidentally.

The Arthur Newbery Park

12 Larissa Cl, Reading RG31 6LE, UK

Only just discovered this place after living in Tilehurst over 20 years. A real oasis of peace and quiet in the middle of Tilehurst. Great location for walking your dog.

Nice place to walk your dog. If you do, please pick up after him/her. Other people do not need to see that.

Mapledurham Playing Fields & Pavilion

129 Upper Woodcote Rd, Reading RG4 7LH, UK – 0118 901 5035

Seems odd to review playing fields, but this location is great for people taking their dog for a walk. It is fairly enclosed, although the top end has no fencing along Hewett Avenue, and the car park is open to the entrance road (as you would expect). There are 4 or 5 football pitches, and also smaller training areas. The pitches are often used when other local pitches have been flooded, although the whole area can get quite muddy. The pavillion is a complete mess which needs some major work. There is an enclosed playing area with climbing frame/zip wire/swings etc but I'm not too sure what state they are in these days. Also a small wooded area in which it is fairly safe to let your dog roam, as I believe all the houses have good fencing. Be it a good thing, or a bad thing, there are plans to build a school on the grounds. We are assured that it will not take any of the football pitches, and so I assume there will be plenty of room for the dogs to 'run off their leads'. I do have major concerns about access, increased traffic and safety.

Great place for a walk and watch the boats float by on the River Thames.

Great website!. Click below to find gardens open during the year around Calcot or Berkshire. There are photos and lots of detail about the garden.
