Harlow Town Park

Harlow Town Park, designed by Dame Sylvia Crowe, covers 164 acres and is a great place to visit in any season with the outdoor bandstand provided public entertainment including jazz, pop and rock concerts since the 1960's. Annual events include the fireworks display and fairground.

In the summer come and enjoy the live music events, take a splash in the local paddling pool and cool down with refreshments from Spurriers Café.

Take advantage of the Skatepark area and the adventure playground to burn off that summer holiday energy!

With a number of attractions for all the family, Harlow Town Park is the ideal place for adults and children to take leisurely strolls, experience the natural wildlife and relax and enjoy the beautiful surroundings.

There is also easy access on foot to the Stort Valley Meadows and its Marshes.
