Brilliant green space close to Southampton for running or walking. Located not far from the Common. Small children’s playground named after famous Southampton war hero Jack Mantle, football and cricket playing g fields and old fairground rides.

Visited on 29th May 2021 to watch my granddaughter play football. First time there & it’s a great place for sport & recreation. Sadly was let down by the awful toilets, only ones open were near the entrance. These were in a pretty poor & fairly dirty state,not good especially with the current situation and the fact it’s a really busy place. Definitely need to be updated & improved.

Open the toilets and clean it up. Very unkempt. No toilet open apart from disgusting gents no ladies. This is a safe open space to walk. We live in millbrook and love to walk up there but can't do that. Ridiculous to not have toilets open. The view pub open for takeaway but that is also disgusting. Rubbish dirt god knows what. Won't be returning even though it is good and safe for Walking.

Come-on you Locals. You've paid your Council Tax (allegedly) so go see it. First rate fun for Kids brilliantly presented and just one of many facilities available . In summer; Boating Paddling gets you fit AND a paddling pool. 3 tiered cricket pitches, tennis Sunday League football pitches AND a Ski Centre all bookable thro' SBCouncil to Club Secretaries/Public.. Ample parking at SO167AY. This Public Sports Centre amenity won 'Best Municipal Sports Ground' in Europe many years ago. I'm guessing around 1970's? But,at my age memory's going......what was the question?
Have fun,

Was brilliant for the children and now brilliant for the grandchildren. All the best rides still there and new ones added. Very gentle but a favourite for all 3 generations

They're is something for everyone here. Lots of grass for kids to play, playground wirh settings etc there's a lovely long walk around the golf course, the golf course cafe where you can get a drink or a cuppa and something to eat. Theres also a pub just inside the sports centre, by the bowling greens 🎳
Older ones can enjoy a gentle walk and watch the various sports beinng played, eg tennis, cricket, hockey, football ⚽

😏 What makes this place ok is its location with the attractions all around it.

Looking at it through the eyes of my 6 year old I can see why he loves it, which child doesn't like an amusement park, then again as an adult you would thrown upon the state of the equipment.
