Owned by Carlisle City Council and operated by Carlisle Leisure, Bitts Park is a super fun and largely free day out for all the family! There is a fantastic children’s adventure playground with sturdy modern equipment including a Pirate Ship sand play area, all suited to 3 to 10 year olds. You can also find a Putting Green, pretty good Crazy Golf course, a mini maze and both open air and under cover tennis courts!
They also have a seasonal FunSplash water splash park (from Easter to October) with fun interactive features like spray jets and tipping bucket. There are pleasure walks and the riverside walk to enjoy as well as a stroll through the Japanese Garden. The Hadrian’s Wall Trail also passes through this park. A refreshments kiosk is on hand where any necessary equipment can be hired such as golf clubs and rackets etc. Annual events here include a huge bonfire and fireworks event in November, an ice skating rink during the festive period and a celebration during Love Parks Week in July.
