Over recent weeks I’ve been exploring the green spaces around Camberley and the Surrey Heath area. Crabtree Park is somewhere I didn’t know existed until very recently. It’s a part of Camberley town that I just hadn’t ventured to but now I love having it so close by.
Crabtree Park recreation ground is a lush, green open space in Camberley. It’s the sort of place that if you didn’t live near it or know about it you’d never stumble across it. Surrounded by houses and industrial sites, and adjacent to allotments, it’s a beautiful recreation ground park and a great place for families to spend time.
The park has a nice track all the way around it – and across the middle – making it perfect for walking or jogging. It has trim trail equipment dotted around and a skate park in the centre.
The park is a great size to walk a dog or exercise and there’s plenty of space for ball games, for kids to ride their bikes or to just relax and have a picnic. It’s somewhere I wish I’d known about earlier and somewhere the children now love to visit.
Although there isn’t a play area in Crabtree Park, it’s a stone’s throw from the Orchard Way play area which would be easy to add to a trip to Crabtree Park. The park also has car parking on site if you want to visit from further afield.
Crabtree Park has a footbridge linking it to Watchmoor Reserve and Sainsburys, meaning I never drive to the supermarket anymore and instead take this handy shortcut to access it through the park. Watchmoor Reserve is a real haven for local wildlife and somewhere the local community really value too.
I love spending time in Crabtree Park. In the mornings, it’s quiet, you can listen to the birds and everyone I pass says hello or good morning. It’s just such a nice place and one I really appreciate having locally.
For reference, the Crabtree Park address is: Crabtree Road, Camberley GU15 2TA
