Welcome to the Friends of Leesland Park Website - the home of ParkFest

For anyone who is not sure where the green and pleasant oasis that is Leesland Park lies, we would be hard pushed to beat the view from Google Earth. Somewhat less complicated would be to say that the site lies at the heart of Gosport's Leesland Ward with its boundaries formed by Whitworth Close, Daisy Lane, St Andrews/Kings Road, Toronto Place, and Cottage Grove.

Entrance to the park is available from several points around the perimeter with the main entrance points at Daisy Lane, Lavinia Road and Cottage Grove. Access can also be made from the cycle path network and from behind Toronto Place.  

In the course of the parks regeneration and development, the Friends have tried to create areas of interest for all members of our community. Specialist zones include a sensory garden, community orchard, skate-park, children's play area and conservation meadow. Within these zones you will find a number of interesting and what we think are unique points of interest. For example in the sensory garden look out for the 'totem pole' markers and sundial all overseen by our 'Green Man' sentinel while over in the orchard look out for the 'Ruth's Trail.'

Please now take the time to browse the rest of our site which includes a virtual walk around the park, details of our monthly workdays and special events including ParkFest. Before you leave us, please save this site to your bookmarks/favourites and don't forget to return to see what we are doing to further enhance and develop the park and its facilities.

Most importantly now that you know where we are, please make time for a visit.
