Wyndham Park, Grantham
Wyndham Park in Grantham is one of the very best in Britain – and that’s official!
The park’s town centre location next to Grantham’s Riverside Walk means it’s hugely popular with visitors and local alike. It’s South Kesteven District Council’s aim to provide a park which is not only welcoming but safe, offering a superb range of activities and experiences to suit all ages.
We have been a “Green Flag” park since 2012. This is a UK-wide mark of excellence for parks and gardens and winning the award means Wyndham Park is recognised as being amongst the best in the country.
Grantham’s Wyndham Park Forum and South Kesteven District Council have received support from the Heritage Lottery Fund (HLF) and the Big Lottery Fund.
The funding is for a project aimed at restoring the park to its former glory as a First World War memorial park and be one of the district’s finest assets.
Tennis has long featured as an important facility within the park – available for use free of charge all year round.
Cycling is encouraged both to and within the park. There is a dedicated cycle route through the park which forms part of the SUSTRANS National Cycle Network.
Water play facility
The paddling pool, an original feature of the park was refurbished during 2015 and now offers more inclusive opportunities for children to enjoy water play. With its interactive water jets and a traditional paddling pool the new facility, which is normally open from the May Day Bank Holiday until October, has proved immensely popular.
