Castle Park House and Gardens in Frodsham is an attractive historic park with 9 hectares of Green Flag awarded grounds offering a mixture of formal gardens, wide open lawns, intriguing wooded areas and recreational leisure facilities, like a bowling green and tennis courts. Loads of space for fun family activities, picnicking or just lazing about with some munchkin books in the sunshine.
Alright they were just joking about the lazing about, you know that's not going to happen again until there at least 12, but there are 2 big sandy areas to enjoy until then with unusual climbing frames and a vast grassy area between the play area and the car park. Don't forget your buckets and spades or you're going to get nagged in wee squeaky voices.
The Castle Park Arts Centre in the old Castle Park house is reached via Fountains Lane and has 3 galleries great for exploring if you need to escape extremes of weather of one kind or another, exhibitions which change regularly, so repeat visits can be interesting too!
You are of course welcome to picnic, but if you don't there is also a pavilion cafe in the park to hit up, which also has toilet facilities available to the general public.
The walk through the park up Frodsham Hill offers a view out over the Mersey Estuary towards Liverpool, so if the little legs are still full of it there's a lovely way to finish them off right here.

We went to Castle Park today during the warm weather at the start of the Easter holidays and it was just beautiful. We took our dog for a walk around the grounds, which were really picturesque and sat on a blanket on the grass while our 10 month old crawled around and watched the big children playing on the park and football. There was plenty of space for lots of families and groups of young people enjoying the sunshine. Everyone was social and very pleasant. We went for an ice cream at the cafe near the kids park which wasn't the nicest (my husband described it as sweet and grainy mashed potato) but it wasn't too expensive-£1.50. My husband took our baby boy to the park whilst I stood with the dog. It was very busy and not baby friendly but he went down the slide on my husband's lap and just enjoyed watching the other children playing. There is a bowling green next to the park and cafe so lots of things for different age groups. Our only issue was the post code takes you around the back which is the walking route rather than to the main car park entrance on Chester Road. Luckily my husband knows the roads as he drives through on his way home from work sometimes so we didn't get too lost for too long. We will definitely be going again and would highly recommend it for a nice free day out.boneau, Frodsham, United Kingdom
