Hunter Park is owned and managed by Twyford Parish Council. The western section of the park is on land which was a gift to the Parish Council by Mr Hunter, hence the name of the park. You can read more about the history here.
The park was officially opened by Lord Ashburton on the 25th April 1964
It can be reached by Park Lane, off the High St. The park includes a pavilion, cricket pitch, football pitch, static outdoor gym equipment, tennis courts and children’s playground. There is a small car park for users of the park facilities.
The park is generally available for public use. The pavilion and sports pitches are available to hire for sporting or other events, please contact the Parish Clerk for details.
Some of the events through the year include fireworks and a circus visited on 18 June 2017.
