Open all year round, Spa Park is a recreation area close to Spa Gardens and just a short walk from Ripon market place.

The play area was refurbished and extended in 2011 and now has a wide range of children's play equipment. The centrepiece is a large mound-like fort with a slide.

The Rotary Club has created a replica of an 1827 gravel maze set into the grass.

Facilities include:

  • children's play area
  • maze
  • football pitch
  • three tennis courts available during daylight hours throughout the year on a pay and play basis (for business use please call 01423 500600). Please visit to book a tennis court.
  • toilets, including disabled toilets, across the road in Spa Gardens

Visitor information

Spa Park is in Church Lane, Ripon, HG4 2ES. There's limited on-street parking alongside the park. The football pitches are available from March to October.

The park has no formal tarmac paths, so access is across grass. The paths to and around the play area have been reinforced with a durable plastic mesh.
