Dog poo everywhere unfortunately and very small playground. Good for sleighing in the snow and very much worth a visit.

A fantastic park for picnics with a great children's play area. Really close to Northcroft Leisure Centre for toilets, food etc. Close to Newbury Town Centre. Lots of shaded parts for shelter on really sunny days!

Took a walk along the Kennet & Avon Canal and out through Northcroft Park. Its a spacious park, with wide open spaces. Only downside, is the dog mess - owners really should be more careful!

Lovely parks by the river and great safe fenced play area with a popular zip wire. Play area suits younger children with multiple play items while the zip wire is popular with older kids.

My husband and I walk through parts of Newbury regularly. We like walking through Goldwell park and up to Speen Lane. The park is pretty, not truly outstanding, but very pleasant especially in Spring and Summer when there are flowers and trees in blossom. Unfortunately...More
