Interesting from a historical perspective with some fab old trees , but otherwise do people realise they are sitting on top of graves? Yobs like to hang out behind library. Not a tourist attraction

I mean it has grass and kids park. Ooh and some top quality benches if you're lucky enough to get one. It's a big park but I won't play frisbee or football as I once saw a frisbee fly too far and hit a car windscreen, mental.

If you are visiting the Town of Newport then this small park is a place to visit and chill out, there is some history information of this park which can be found on the monument on the north side by the library.

Lovely park for kids to play in. A really nice space but spoilt by undesirables drinking, and sleeping rough. Such a shame but neds clearing up,

Church Litten originated as a cemetery dating from 1582 when Newport was hit by the plague. Previously Newport had no burial ground, being part of the parish of Carisbrooke. 'Litten' comes from a Saxon word meaning a cemetery. The area has been an open space since the 1950's.

One surviving monuments within the park is a memorial to Valentine Gray, an early nineteenth century boy chimney sweep.

Litten Park is owned and maintained by the Isle of Wight Council. A Children's Play Area was built within the park in about 2003.
