Ampthill Great Park
Ampthill Great Park is owned and managed by Ampthill Town Council, assisted by The Greensand Trust
Approximately 160 acres of parkland and woodland, including a Children’s Play Area, Park Hub with Cafe and Toilets, Tennis Courts, Ampthill Town Cricket Club, Ampthill Town Football Club and Ampthill Angling Club. The Park is cared for by a Park and Amenities Manager and The Greensand Trust rangers.
The Park is much more than a pleasant place to visit; it’s a nationally important historic site. Henry VIII hunted here and the parkland landscape we enjoy today was created by Lancelot ‘Capability’ Brown in the 18th century. It is also home to a variety of interesting wildlife and the park’s veteran trees, many planted by Capability Brown, some even older, are a valuable part of the park’s heritage.
