Attraction Information

Richmond Park, originally a deer-hunting park, still has 300 Red Deer and 350 fallow deer living wild on the grounds. It is also a top site to see ancient trees, especially oaks, endangered species of fungi, and a number of scarce beetles! It is free to visit, and open throughout the year, offering differing natural splendours depending on the season.

The park is a great place to go for a walk, especially in the stunning Isabella Plantation. Enjoy a bike ride (you can rent bikes here), or even a horse ride. It is also a good spot for fishing, and Power Kiting! Bests of all, it has 2 playgrounds to entertain and amuse the kids.

The Kingston Gate Playground has been designed with children under 5 in mind and is a popular playground for small children. It is located adjacent to the Kingston Gate Car Park, and features timber play sculptures including a fairy pergola and a tractor and trailer, plus multi use play equipment, a bark pit, a hammock, and a children's picnic area.

The other playground, Petersham Gate, has been designed to be used by children of all ages, and it features a sandpit, bark pit with a climbing frame and jumping lily pads, balancing blocks and a hammock, an elephant piano (xylophone), a see-saw and a water play feature. There is a timber pergola next to the sand pit that is great if you want to sit in the shade, and there are plenty of wide steps and boulders to use as seats.
