Orangefield Park and Victoria Park are open 24/7. The rest of our parks open at 7.30am and close at the following times throughout the year.
If a park contains a 3G pitch, its gates may remain open while the pitches are booked for play. Users must leave the park promptly after play finishes on the 3G pitches as the park gates will be locked within 15 minutes.

Musgrave Park was awarded the Green Flag Award in 2010, 2011, 2012, 2013, 2014, 2015, 2016, 2017 and 2018. This award recognises the best open spaces in the UK.
Musgrave Park also contains an innovative therapy garden, which was developed with the support of several nearby schools. The garden combines different therapeutic features in one space to improve the quality of life, development and wellbeing of local residents. A 'whispering' wall is the central focus of the garden, which is fitted with acoustic equipment and a mosaic finish to encourage sensory, stimulatory and interactive play.
Other features include:
• a story circle and meeting area
• a willow tunnel
• a sand play area
• bed for planting designed with disabled access
• musical instruments
• community artwork
• play equipment.
The therapy garden was made possible through the support from the European Union's European Regional Development Fund (ERDF) - PEACE III.
