Exploring Camberley Park

Over the last few weeks we’ve been exploring local green spaces that we’ve never ventured to before around Camberley Surrey. We usually stick to our local park, Watchetts Recreation Ground, but have taken time to explore the other parks in the area too.

The only time I’d ever been to Camberley Park was when LP was a baby, nearly ten years ago. It was nothing more than a muddy field and I swiftly left and stuck to the other parks we knew.

But on a recent walk I discovered that a few years ago a new housing estate had been built and Camberley Park had been given a wonderful face lift. The muddy field was no more and instead there was a lush green expanse of grass and a lovely play area. It’s now one of the nicest playgrounds around Camberley town.

Camberley Park sits just behind the council offices in Camberley, behind the library and Camberley theatre. It’s not obvious from the road, making it a really lovely, secluded place to spend time.

The park is also just below the Obelisk, a historic Camberley landmark but one that has sadly been fenced off over recent months and is no longer accessible – but you can see the Obelisk from a distance and read an information board about it.

Camberley Park play area is fantastic. There’s a fenced play park with roundabout, swings, climbing frame, seesaw and more as well as a trim trail outside of the fenced play area.

The children loved the trim trail. It had so many different parts to it and they really enjoyed seeing how fast they could move across it and if they could get from one end to the other without their feet touching the floor.

Camberley Park proved to be such a nice place to spend time as a family and a real asset to the town. It’s just on the edge of the town centre so could easily be added on to a trip into town and is just such a nice space for children to play.

I’m really enjoying exploring more of what our town has to offer and it makes me feel with each discovery that it’s just such a nice place to live as a family and for the children to grow up. You can see more ideas of things to do in Camberley with kids here and make sure you read about Frimley Lodge Park on the Basingstoke Canal near Frimley Green and Lightwater Country Park too. There are so many great country parks, play areas and open spaces in and around Surrey Heath borough.
