Gadebridge Park attractions
Gadebridge Park sits between Hemel Hempstead Old Town and the Leighton Buzzard Road. See a map of the park.
Splash park - coming soon
Gadebridge Park will soon be home to a new splash park, with work set to begin in 2017. We will also be installing new additional, seasonal toilets and a kiosk, which will serve refreshments for visitors. A new play area will entertain children and families all year round, too.
Some of our current recreation facilities (crazy golf, croquet, petanque, giant chess and draughts, and a public bowls green) will be closed in 2017 so work on the splash park can begin. All other attractions, including the play area and the skate park, will be open as usual.
A bowls green continues to be operated by Hemel Hempstead Bowls Club. Call 01442 230668 for information.
The play area, located off the Queensway car park, offers a wide range of equipment designed for children and young people aged from 2 to 15 years.
Located by the Park and Ride car park off the Leighton Buzzard Road, the skate park is equipped with five quarter pipes, a jump box, volcano, half pyramid, grind box, midi ramp and a grind rail.
For more information, please visit our public toilets page.
Cycle paths and walks
Cycle paths run along the main drive from Queensway (Bury Lodge entrance) to Piccotts End Road and through to the Leighton Buzzard Road underpass.
The Countryside Management Service (CMS) has devised a 5km (three-mile) walk through Gadebridge Park, up the Nickey Line to Howe Grove Wood and back. For more information, visit the Countryside Management Service website.
