Hatherley Park and Play Area

Parks & Walks


  • All the family
  • Under 5s
  • School age





If you’re looking for a quieter option to busy Pittville or Montpellier, Hatherley Park is a great spot with lots going for it.

Whilst there are some things for the older kids (basketball hoop and large climb frame), Hatherley Park really comes into it’s own if you have pre-schoolers.

Once in the park there’s a pretty lake with very friendly ducks and some good spots for feeding.

The toddler play area has quite a lot of activities including cradle-swings, a slide, train and seesaw and crucially, just one entrance/exit which is handy if you’re trying to keep an eye on two.

🦋 Nestled in the idyllic Hatherley Park, surrounded by conker trees, is The Butterfly Box. 

Serving an array of hot and cold drinks daily 9am - 5pm, along with home made cakes and Ruby's cookies! This is the ultimate pit stop for parents who wish to while away the hours, watching children play in the near by play area, whilst supping a delicious barista made coffee. 

Follow the Butterflies and you'll not be disappointed. 🦋
