A sport, children’s and general recreational area was created with paddling pool sand pit and playground; a seaside type promenade was built alongside the riverfront complete with Bandstand and shelters and opened by the Duke of York in 1926.

Recently a new paddling pool and sand pit has been built alongside many other restoration projects making this beautiful riverside park an excellent family facility.

The heath boasts a rich and colourful history which included a period as an army mustering and training ground, a haunt of highwaymen and the venue for one of the world’s first commercial airports. Today, the heath is managed for wildlife and supports several rare or declining plant and animal species. There is a car park and an information centre situated close to the Staines Road entrance.
