Open Spaces

Hedge End Town Council looks after most of the public open space in Hedge End, including the 16-acre park at Dowd's Farm, complete with its substantial lake.

Nearby Grange Park has an extensive network of walks and cycleways, including one along the railway line. It also has a walk from Lakeside to the recreation ground at Woodhouse Lane.

Central Hedge End also has a network of walks. One route connects Greta Park with Turnpike Way and Bridget Mary Gardens.

In the south, there is some lovely walking to be had in the Manor Farm Country Park, which starts at the edge of town and extends along the River Hamble. We are also fortunate to have Itchen Valley Country Park and Royal Victoria Country Park only a short drive or cycle away.
