Eastville Park

Popular inner city park that has open, grassy fields – perfect for throwing the ball around and giving your dog a good run around. You can walk down to a lovely fishing lake and then follow the path along the River Frome. There are some woodland areas along the route, with lots of swimming opportunities for a water-loving pooch.

It’s possible to follow the river via the Frome Valley Walkway to Oldbury Court Estate and Snuff Mills – which are also very popular dog walking spots.

The history

‘Eastville Park Lake to Wickham Court is part of the Tuckett Trail. Frank Tuckett was one of the prime movers behind the creation of Eastville Park. The land was purchased in 1889 and the park finally completed in 1909 with building of the lake which was constructed by the unemployed as a type of job creation scheme is now regarded as one of the best public park lakes in the country.’
