Things to Do

Dog Walking

The wide open green spaces across the moor are perfect for taking the dog for a walk, with lots of greenery away from the activity stations dotted around the park.

Outdoor Gym

In a specially designed area, there are 10-exercise station evenly spaced out around a circular path. These will test you on the push, pull or pedal styles of exercise. And they make for a decent exercise routine that you can walk, jog or run between each one.


There is one football full sized grass pitch with fixed goals on the moor. This pitch is maintained by Drighlington Community Sports Club.


The concrete multi-use-games-area has basketball court markings with fixed hoops; this court is ideal for a small game or as a place to practice on your own.


There is a concrete skatepark with a limited amount of fixed installations. Roll over banks, curbs, and quarters or grind rails in what is a small but fun skatepark.
