The Best Green Spaces In Warwickshire
As local estate agents, we believe that one of the greatest parts of living in Warwickshire is the access to local green spaces. Whilst there are many lovely parks and trails to choose from in the local area, we recommend the following spaces as the best ones to visit. These green spaces are also a great draw for those looking to buy a house in Leamington Spa.
Jephson Gardens, Green Spaces in Leamington Spa
Located centrally in Leamington Spa, Jephson Gardens is the ideal picnic spot with its proximity to the Parade’s many cafes and restaurants – perfect for grabbing a bite to eat in the park. Alternatively you can visit the park’s own café, The Aviary, an elegant tea pavilion in what used to be a Victorian birdhouse.
Jephson Gardens is also a great park for an easy-going stroll. There’s plenty to see, including art sculptures, flower bed displays and an award winning sensory garden. The park is also home to East Lodge, an art studio and gallery, and the Glasshouse, which houses a goldfish pond and tropical plants.
Whether you’re thinking of buying a house in Leamington Spa or are already a resident, Jephson Gardens is a must-visit.
St Nicholas Park, Green Spaces in Warwick
Boasting a wide range of activities, such as mini golf, a fun park, and an outdoor pool, St Nicholas Park is fun for the whole family. This park is easily accessible with it’s own car park and a short walk from the town centre, and can suit any pace – whether you’re visiting for a relaxed walk along the river or an energetic game of football with your friends.
In our opinion however, the best part of St Nicholas Park is the boating. With a variety of different boats for hire to take you along the River Avon, boaters of any skill level can enjoy the river and most importantly, the magnificent views of Warwick Castle.
If you’re in the market for houses for sale in Warwick, we strongly recommend a visit to St Nicholas Park.
Ufton Fields, Ufton
For dog-walkers, trail-lovers, and nature-spotters, Ufton Fields makes for a refreshing afternoon out. Away from town centres and high streets, Ufton Fields is an ex-quarry nature reserve and is the perfect place to experience the great outdoors. Ufton Fields features a two kilometre circular walking trail, with feature stops in significant areas letting you know what nature you might be able to spot.
For those looking to spot the local birds and dragonflies, there are two bird hides which provide a great opportunity to get a great view. Just a short drive away from Leamington Spa, Ufton Fields is a great trail to visit to get in touch with nature.
