Across the A23 from Tilgate Park, Broadfield Park is set in the grounds of Broadfield House, a Grade II Listed Building dating back to 1830.
The parkland around the house comprises an attractive mix of landscaped lawns and a variety of ponds and meadows. The site includes a small stream which spreads to form a series of shallow pools. Further downstream the valley has been dammed to form a small lake.
Broadfield Park is managed as a nature reserve . A marked nature trail leads from the lawns past the ponds along a boardwalk and through the woodland. The Greenway follows this route.
Broadfield Park is part of The Queen Elizabeth II Fields Challenge, operated by Fields in Trust , a campaign to protect outdoor recreational spaces in communities all across the country as a permanent living legacy of The Queen’s Diamond Jubilee. Six outdoor spaces in Crawley were chosen to become part of the scheme – one for each decade of the Queen’s reign.
The park can be accessed either via the A23 or on foot via Vulcan Close. There are also three footpaths directly into the park from Woodmans Hill.
Nearest Bus Stop: Numbers 271, 273 & 773 (Broadfield Park stop).
