Welcome to the Kearsney Parks website
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.
THANK YOU! To everyone who contributed to our Heritage Lottery Fund bid for the Kearsney Parks. We've secured a £3m investment for our restoration and improvement plans.
As part of our National Lottery funded project at Kearsney Abbey we're building a 180 sq. m. extension to the cafe. This will provide an enlarged café with modern kitchen facilities, along with new customer toilets. The extension and toilets will be fully accessible, including a Changing Places facility. A new outside space will provide additional seating.
Please excuse our apperance whilst this exciting project is underway.
Park and Ride
On May Bank Holiday weekend we’ll be trialling a Park and Ride service to Kearsney Abbey. A free bus will run from the council’s main office at Whitfield down to the park between 9am and 5pm. The bus will run on Saturday 25th, Sunday 26th and Monday 27th May 2019. The bus will be accessible to wheelchairs and buggies. Dogs will be allowed at the driver’s discretion. More information is on our events page.
