Sconce & Devon Parks
Surround yourself with civil war history and discover the very best of the great outdoors at Sconce and Devon park (NG24 4AU),
Enjoy the present in Newark’s largest open space, where you’ll find modern facilities including a children’s play area, fitness trail, café and a network of pathways suitable for prams and pushchairs.
And step back in time by exploring the star-shaped site of the Queen’s Sconce - one of the country's finest remaining earthworks from the 17th century British Civil War. Signs and a trail around the park explain the history of the site.
The park has been awarded Green Flag status in recognition of its excellent range of facilities, maintenance standards and opportunities for community involvement.
