Parks and outdoor spaces

A list of parks and outdoor spaces in Doncaster, each with their own things to see and do, how to report a problem and how to apply for a memorial in a park.

Our parks are categorised into two types depending on what you can see and do there:

  • Major parks and outdoor spaces
  • Local parks and outdoor spaces

Major parks and outdoor spaces

Whether you live in Doncaster, or are simply visiting for the day, the borough's major parks and outdoor spaces have a wide range of things to see and do including:

  • places to play like toddler and junior play areas and playing fields
  • sports facilities including tennis courts, sports pitches, multi-use games areas and bowling greens
  • places to enjoy a sit and a bite to eat, from cafés to picnic areas
  • wide open spaces and beautiful scenery to enjoy on various walking routes and nature walks

Local parks and outdoor spaces

Looking for somewhere near you to keep the little ones occupied? Perhaps you're travelling to another area in Doncaster and want somewhere to enjoy time outdoors? There are lots of local parks and outdoor spaces across the borough you can visit.

Whilst local parks and outdoor spaces don't have as wide a range of facilities as our major parks, they're still home to great facilities like toddler and junior play areas, multi-use games areas and outdoor gym equipment.
