Mayfield Park, Southampton - well worth a visit!

Mayfield Park is a beautiful area on the eastern side of Southampton. Owned by Southampton City Council, it contains some well maintained gardens, woodland walks and long lawns to happily enjoy.  The gardens contain many large trees and Victorian style flower beds.

It has a long history dating back to shortly before World War 2 and was formerly the grounds of Mayfield House, built in 1854. 

The park is known for its imposing Obelisk, which commemorates the political leader from the late eighteenth and early nineteenth century Charles Fox.  Mayfield Nursery, a bowling green, a children’s playground and football playing fields can all be found here so there’s much to see and do.

It is a beautiful area with much to recommend it and well worth a visit.  It can be found at Wrights Hill, Weston, Southampton SO19 9HL.
