About Kingsgate Park

Kingsgate Park is an excellent leisure area situated between Sundridge Park and Scott Way.

It's perfectly possible to drive past it without noticing it's there, but it's well worth exploring.

It's accessible on foot by various entrances from Kenilworth, Elmwood, Sunningdale and Scott Way, and there's a small car park located at the end of Elmwood, off Sundridge Park.

There's a large playground in the centre of the park, with an adventure area that will make the adults jealous!

Kingsgate Park, Yate

The lake is home to swans, ducks and newts, and the eastern edge of the park is a dedicated nature reserve area. Use of model boats is permitted on the lake.

In 2003 Yate Town Council took over management of the park and the Friends of Kingsgate Park' group was formed to assist the Council to do this in the best possible way.

Details of the success of this partnership can be found on the Yate Town Council website.

If you would like to get involved with the 'Friends of Kingsgate Park', please contact Yate Town Council who will be pleased to pass your details on.
