Kingsgate Park, Yate

About Kingsgate Park

Kingsgate Park is an excellent leisure area situated at Elmwood, between Sundridge Park and Scott Way, Yate BS37 4JB.

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

The park is open from 6am and closes at 10pm in the Summer (April onwards), 9pm otherwise.

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.

Yate Rocks!

Usually Yate Town Council hosts Yate Rocks! each year - it's a free musical festival for all the family, with dance from local clubs and academies.

Easter Extravaganza

Kingsgate Park, Yate

Yate Town Council, in conjunction with The Friends of Kingsgate Park, holds a free annual Easter Egg Extravaganza.

The event is open to all children aged under 12 years and entrance is free. Upon completing the treasure hunt, a chocolate Easter egg is presented (subject to availability) to each child taking part. Please be aware there are a limited number of prizes available.

There is a separate area for children aged 5 and under.

There is also an Easter Bonnet parade at 11.00 am and the child with the best bonnet wins a prize.

Friends of Kingsgate Park

Kingsgate Park, Yate

We are a friendly informal group who work closely with Yate Town Council, which owns the park, to provide an open green space for the benefit of all.

We meet four times a year, plus we organise work days in the park and help Yate Town Council at the Easter Egg Hunt, the festival Yate Rocks! and Carols in the Park.

Apart from that we provide swan and duck food, which is sold at the Vintage Birdcage Cakery. All profits from this go back into Kingsgate Park, e.g.for more swan/duck food, new benches and plants.

Friends of Kingsgate Park in Yate are hoping to attract more volunteers to help them look after the park, which is used by all ages.

Anyone interested in helping to keep Kingsgate Park as one of the green lungs of Yate - please get in touch.
