Barclay Park

The significance of the park

The park is managed by Broxbourne Borough Council and it is a significant green space and is the largest open space in the north of the Borough. It is an important facility for both people and wildlife. Barclay Park is a community park and is used extensively by local residents as well as visitors from far and wide. Socially the park is a meeting place for all ages in an environment which is aesthetically pleasing and totally removed from the urban character of its surroundings.

Barclay Park is open to the public 24 hours a day all year round and is well used by local residents, visitors and schools. The park is popular with all ages and informal activities include walking, jogging, dog walking, feeding the ducks, picnicking and using the play and multi-use games areas. In times of high snowfall the park is well use for tobogganing, snowballing and snowman making activities.

Formal use includes history walks, bird walks and pond dipping sessions run by the Green Spaces Officer for local school children and community groups.

Other uses of the park include an annual Easter Egg hunt which attracts over 300 children each year.
