New toilets now open in Kearsney Abbey
We can’t wait to fully open our new visitor facilities when the lockdown restrictions are eased. In the meantime, the new toilets in Kearsney Abbey are now open daily from 8am to 4pm during the winter season.
Please help us keep these new facilities clean and observe the current rules to keep everyone safe. Remember - wash hands, cover face, make space!
The car park at Kearsney Abbey is open along with the temporary café and toilets (including disabled access).
Welcome to Kearsney Abbey & Russell Gardens
There's something for all the family at Russell Gardens and Kearsney Abbey - visitors already enjoy great days out at Kearsney Parks but we're looking to make the experience even better. We're restoring these two historic parks to create a unique heritage, community and event venue.
While the work is taking place, there is limited parking available on site. Please think about using public transport, cycling or walking to the parks. If you do drive, please think about the nearby residents. Please park considerately, and do not block emergency access routes.
2021 Calendar on sale now!
The Kearsney Parks 2021 calendar is now on sale from the temporary cafe, or for order online.
Works In Russell Gardens
Site works continue in Russell Gardens. This means there is no access to the north side of the ornamental lake at this time. We apologise for any inconvenience.
We have closed off some pathways into Russell Gardens. The pathway from the new timber gate main entrance to Russell Garden is open, and access to Bushy Ruff is via the ornamental brick boat house and pathway. Due to site limitation we are not able to have a step free access route currently, however further pathway works and route closures/openings will be notified in due course.
