Parks and open spaces

There are 23 parks, 95 open spaces and 59 natural areas in Norwich, which are managed by the green spaces team:

  • Many of the parks have children's play areas.
  • There are paddling pools at Waterloo and Wensum Parks, which are open in the summer.
  • Eaton Park has a model boat pond.
  • Wensum and Earlham Parks are riverside parks.
  • There are outdoor sports facilities at a number of parks as well as teenage facilities.
  • A number of popular events are held in the parks every year.
  • Lottery funding has enabled four historic parks — Waterloo, Wensum, Heigham and Eaton — to be restored.
  • Heigham Park and Waterloo Park are locked at 'park closing time'. All other parks remain unlocked but games finish 15 minutes before 'park closing time'. Please ensure enough time is allowed to play any games eg pitch and putt — a minimum of 2½ hours).

Dogs are welcome in most parks and open spaces as long as they are under control. In some parks, they are only allowed on leads and it is against the law to allow a dog to foul a public space and not clear up after them.

Hiring the parks

The parks, open spaces and facilities can be hired for events.

CityCare maintains parks and open spaces under the Grounds maintenance contract.
