Things to Do

Some of the best things to do in Rodley Park are:

Dog Walking

This a regular dog walking spot for a lot of the locals. The beauty of this place is the park is right next to some woodland which provides a bit of variety when walking the dog.

Fairy Trail

In 2020 local mums Charlotte and Sheree had the best idea to create a fairy trail in Rodley Park. There are over 100 doors that have been hand cut and painted hidden in the park. Take some time out and find as many as these as possible – perfect for the little ones that love a hunt!

Playground

The playground has a really big eye catching slide. There’s also the usual swings, see-saws and a climbing frame.

Multi-Use Games Area

If you fancy playing a bit of football or basketball you can step onto the hard surface of the MUGA in most weather. The markings are there to help you play a team game or a little one on one.

Bird Spotting

Rodley Park is great for a bit of bird spotting. At different times of the year you can expect to see different birds in the park. Keep an eye out for the classics like the robin and great spotted woodpecker. Or other feathered friends including the treecreeper, nuthatch, wren and dunnock.

Flora

The park blooms with a wide array of plant life in the spring and summer. The local community group have planted lots of wildflowers, crocus and daffodils in the past. Appreciate the changing nature of the green space at Rodley Park and the woodland at the top of the park.
