Fitz Park Keswick
Fitz Park is situated just a few minutes walk from the town centre in a lovely location beside the river Greta. The fantastic play area in the Lower Park includes equipment for children of all ages from toddlers to teenagers. For the little ones don't forget the buckest and spades as there is plenty of sand to dig in. There are wide open spaces for ball games or generally just running about and burning off some energy. Glorious views towards Skiddaw and Latrigg make it an ideal spot for a picnic. Benches are located both by the riverside and in the enclosed playground. A multi use games area provides space for football and basketball. In summertime you can enjoy watching the local cricket teams.
A BMX track is located to the rear of the Football Pavilion. The track has been designed for use by both mountain bikes and BMX bikes and for riders from beginners to advanced with berm corners, step-ups, rollers, doubles, triples and more challenging jumps.
Upper Fitz Park is a formal area with landscaped gardens and arboretum with specimen trees and shrubs. In this side of the park there is an 18 hole putting green, bowls and croquet.
