Goffs Park is one of Crawley's oldest parks and came into public ownership when the new town was developed during the 1950's. Prior to this, settlement on the site can be traced back to the 1300's. The park offers high quality facilities in an attractive, welcoming and safe environment where visitors of all ages can take part in recreational activities such as walking, jogging and casual sports. The park extends to over 20 hectares and has something for everyone. The Walk4Life, the Red Route jogging trail and dog walk take in many of these features including: lakeside paths, mature deciduous woodland. a well equipped children's play area, neatly kept open lawns, a conservation area and plenty of opportunities to simply sit and relax. From April to October, the eighteen hole, par three pitch and putt course offers budding golfers an enjoyable challenge. Having taken a spin on the miniature railway, why not finish your visit with refreshments in Kiosk or the Goffs Manor Pub, which is one of Crawley's oldest buildings dating back to 1450. The large outdoor pub garden makes a pleasant stopping point. Throughout the summer months the park supports many cultural and community led events including theatre productions, live music, educational activities and opportunities to volunteer. These are often in partnership with Friends of Goffs Park.
