The park offers a large area of open space and a circular walk through mature trees. It is maintained to its consistent high standard by our outside team.
The park is open from 8am to dusk spring and summer and from 8am to 4pm from early November to mid-January.
The Bandstand in John Coles Park will be hosting a selection of Sunday afternoon concerts which are free to attend. These popular concerts are a firm favourite in the diary and a super reason to make up a picnic and relax with some gentle toe tapping.
