Wharton Park has been awarded a Green Flag Award. These awards recognise well managed parks and open spaces for all to enjoy. The Green Flag Awards are the benchmark national standard for parks and green spaces in the UK.
There is a designated barbecue area situated on the grassed area next to The Way sculpture, near the picnic benches. Unauthorised fires are not permitted in any other areas of the park. We ask that all barbecues are disposed of responsibly. Please ensure your barbecue is fully extinguished and cool before putting it into the bin.
Wharton Park welcomes responsible dog owners and their dogs. However, the park has a dog on lead policy. The Public Space Protection Order authorises officers to enforce against owners who do not have their dog on a lead. Dog foul must be picked up and disposed of in the bins provided.
Please note that only guide dogs are allowed inside the cafe, all other dogs must remain outside.
BBQs are permitted at Wharton Park but only in the designated area and there is limited space. The space available is next to the picnic tables behind the main car park. You must place the BBQ on the concrete base and not on the grass or benches. Please take all rubbish with you and ensure all BBQs are fully extinguished before you leave the park.
