Horton Country Park

Ideal for private parties, Horton Country Park local nature reserve covers 400 acres. The site is divided into four distinct areas. Around half of the Country Park is public open space designated as local nature reserve.

There are also 4 barbecue sites available, 

Nonsuch Park

Nonsuch Park is a very large open space situated in the north of the borough.

In the grounds of the park is Nonsuch Mansion. The ground floor rooms have recently been completely refurbished and can be hired for weddings and private parties.

Other parks and open spaces

There are over 25 parks and open spaces available to hire around the borough. We are keen to see the borough’s parks and open spaces widely used by local people. Attending or organising events are some of the many ways people can do this. Costs to hire the parks are dependent on the type of event and the person or organisation hiring.

You can use our booking request form at the top of this page.
