Book a park or reserve

Bookings are necessary if you wish to hold an event or organised sporting activity on one of the Town’s parks or reserves. This will ensure that the reserve is suitable for the requested activity and that it is available during the times you wish to hold your event. It also ensures that the Town’s Parks and Rangers teams are aware that your event is taking place. No other bookings will be accepted for the area you have requested, but the park may still be used by casual users (family picnics, dog walkers etc.). The area you have booked will not be fenced off to the general public.
