Cutteslowe & Sunnymead Park
Cutteslowe & Sunnymead Park is open all day, every day, although some activities do have time restrictions.
History of Cutteslowe & Sunnymead Park
The 42 hectacres that make up Cutteslowe & Sunnymead Park is split. The old Cutteslowe Park is to the north and Sunnymead park to the south.
During the Second World War large areas of the park were dug up to produce vegetables.
After the war the park continued to grow with the inclusion of a disused section of allotments to the South of the Cutteslowe area of the park.
This is now managed to provide a semi-natural wildlife area and community woodland.
