We adore Borde Hill Gardens it has such a great play area. My children love the natural elements especially my son Harry as he believes “Harry’s park” is just for him. Its not your run of the mill outdoor park its so different from other parks with its ropes, activities and crafts. We have a season ticket and go at least once a week ……such great value for money. The only change I would like to see is a toilet down at the park such as chemical free natural toilet which would help in those times of need. I would also recommend the holiday activities my children really enjoyed the reptiles and tortoises
Borde Hill is our favourite park and as we live very close, I take the girls there 3-4 times a week! The girls really love the nature walks and collect petals along the way. One of the ladies working at the park recognises us and has even given us a bag on arrival as she knows we’ll collect lots of things. As a family we have been to lots of the summer children’s activities and often go as a family at the weekend too. There are lots of routes to walk round and always something different to see. I recommend Borde Hill without hesitation.
Lovely day out and the gardens are beautiful. Visiting throughout the flowering season will give various displays and all very appealing. Nice Easter hunt today with a small egg as the reward, which was gladly received by the children. A shame the cafe is so expensive, but the picnic areas within the gardens are plentiful and very nice. The children loved the climbing area and very impressed with that - a small area but lots there and well built and maintained. Will definitely return.
Simply add a password and you are good to go!

We've been going up to Borde Hill for a couple of years now since discovering it through friends who live in Haywards Heath. The kids love the playground up there and its so nice to have so much space if we want to head up there with friends in the summer for a picnic. You can easily spend the whole day there without getting bored.
