“A place you must visit in Hull - it's free!”
Review of East Park

A really nice place to have a walk. If you have children they will love the adventure play ground as well as the freedom to run and hide and walk around. You must go into the 'farm' area with many animals that come right up to you for a pat on the back.
The walk-through bird house is wonderful. Birds fly right over your head and around you.
10 out of 10 to the Hull City Council for this free attraction. I went in autumn I now await winter to go again and see the different colours.

Went to feed the ducks, then played on the park. Wondered over to cafe area for coffee and icecream, and discovered the water play area. stayed there for over 2 hours as grandaughter wouldn't leave. Didn't have time to visit the animals, and bird area. All for free!

We go to East Park a fair bit - Mr Smith is from the area - and we have been really impressed on the last couple of visits at the general ambience and facilities there are there now. It is Hull’s largest park and has recently benefited from a council-assisted lottery grant totalling £10 million. There is loads to see - I have checked out Hull City Council's web site to find the following -

a spectacular pavilion containing a café, community room and public toilets. This building is also the nerve centre for the network of 30 CCTV cameras in the park
push-button help points so visitors can talk to an urban park ranger for assistance

3500 new trees, many of which are native British species

two children’s play areas

superb access inside the park by a network of resurfaced footpaths

an animal education centre with classrooms to cater for school and college visits, with a large walk-through aviary so that visitors can see the park's resident animals and birds close up

nine aviaries in total and a farmyard including a pigsty and stables

an enclosed deer park, giving the best living conditions for the park's deer

bowling greens

paddling pool

boating/fishing lake and boat house

model yacht pond

waterchute

two football pitches and two rugby pitches

The park also has beautiful gardens, a maze and the 'Khyber Pass' rock feature. Open parkland is used for outdoor events, including sports.

There have also been events on, including a Veterans Day event and a gymkhana. It is great to see this venue being used to its full potential.

If you live in or around Hull, you should be making the most of this excellent park.

There is plenty to do at east park you could easily spend a whole day here. There is a free animal park and a lovely lake. The kids play area well above average. There are lots of hidden gems scattered around the park. Great also for photography!
