Hampson Park


This 24 acre attractive parkland lies in the middle of four residential streets; Vardon Road, Webb Rise, Lonsdale Road and Meredith Road.

The site has:

  • Football pitches
  • Multi-Use games area
  • Junior kick about area
  • Play area – for toddlers, juniors and teenagers
  • Informal garden

The park is one of the highest points in Stevenage, with great views across the town and surrounding countryside.


Play area

The play area, which is located adjacent to the main car park, was completely upgraded in 2009 and has a range of equipment suitable for toddlers, juniors and teens.

Popularity for the new playground quickly grew and the site is regularly visited from people outside the town.

In September 2009 pupils from Thomas Alleynes school asked if they could do some work on the BMX track to make it more interesting and challenging to use. After appropriate safety checks they re-sculptured parts of the track. Other users were very pleased with the results.

Play areas are inspected daily, litter bins are emptied and litter or broken glass removed.

Play equipment is inspected once a week to ensure that it is safe for continued use.
