Queen Mary's Park is a quiet, natural country park comprising of grassland, meadow and woodland. The park was laid out in the early 2000's having previously been the home of Queen Mary's children's hospital. The park has a beautiful avenue of mature trees, open vistas to the downlands, with natural and cut grassland and walking and cycling paths. The eastern part of the site is an open area of close mown amenity grassland, used for general recreation, whilst the south western part of the park is dominated by mature trees. The park has a fascinating history dating back to Late Bronze Age, with an enclosure from this period protected as a scheduled ancient monument.
