Crawley has a wealth of parks and green spaces for everyone to enjoy. Tilgate Park is our largest and most well known park, but there are many other parks in Crawley offering a range of environments from formal traditional gardens like Worth Park, to the wildlife haven of Bewbush Water Gardens. Find out more about all of them in the Parks and Gardens pages.
As well as formal parks, there are many areas managed in Crawley for conservation. These offer an even more peaceful alternative to our other parks, and the opportunity to see wildlife and habitat conservation in action. Areas of our larger parks are also managed in this way. Look in the Conservation pages to find out more.
The Greenway is a circular, 15 mile route around the town, which brings together the best of Crawley's parks and open spaces, and takes you to places you may not have seen before.
Crawley also has playing fields in every neighbourhood, where you can play sport, take the children, or walk the dog, and there are 650 Allotment Plots available for rent in the town.
Crawley’s parks and open spaces are patrolled seven days a week by a team of Leisure Rangers. They are responsible for checking the children’s play areas, making sure that there has been no vandalism and that they are clear of litter. The team also check the Sports Pavilions, the Skate Park and lakes.
The Rangers work closely with the Community Wardens who deal with any problems of anti-social behaviour in the parks. In the summer months the team works 1pm -9pm and during the winter 8am – 4pm.

Walk4life is part of the change4life initiative to help us get more active and lead healthier lives. Walk4life aims to encourage people to walk more by identifying 2,012 one-mile-long routes around the UK by 2012.
Walking is a great way to improve the general health of the whole family. It’s a feel-good exercise that’s also good for the environment and completely free.
So how do I join in?
So far Crawley has 2 new way marked routes in Goff’s Park and Worth Park.
Way markers have been placed around the one mile routes, and there is a website to record of how much walking you do and motivate you to walk more, to school, to work, or for fun.
