The 164 acre park is a lovely place to visit in any season. There are attractive scenic landscapes, river walks and views, plus the paddling pool (open in the summer season) Pets' Corner, Harlow Showground, Spurriers Cafe and an adventure playground.

The Pets' Corner has a large selection of traditional farm animals, more exotic animals such as Reindeer, Llamas and Alpacas, whilst still keeping with the visitor's favourites' of rabbits, Guinea pigs and chickens and ducks. Pets Corner is free to enter but welcomes donations in the box on site. You can feed some of the animals for 20p a bag, available from feed vending machines.

Watch out for music events held at the Bandstand during the summer, and the fireworks show held at the beginning of November on Harlow Showground.
