Parks and outdoor spaces

A list of parks and outdoor spaces in Doncaster, each with their own things to see and do, how to report a problem and how to apply for a memorial in a park.

Government Guidance

Due to Covid-19 (Coronavirus), please note that during national lockdown restrictions, outdoor gyms, sports courts and other sports facilities are closed (for example skate parks, Multi-use games areas and basketball areas). 

Playgrounds, walking routes and nature walks will remain open, but social distancing must be followed in all these areas. 

Please respect the park – take your litter home with you or use the bins provided and pick up waste after your dog. 

You can continue to use green spaces responsibly, please respect other visitors - do not visit if you have any symptoms, use your own hand sanitiser regularly and adhere to government guidance as detailed on the Coronavirus advice pages. 

Our parks are categorised into two types depending on what you can see and do there:

  • Major parks and outdoor space
  • Local parks and outdoor spaces

Major parks and outdoor spaces

Whether you live in Doncaster, or are simply visiting for the day, the borough's major parks and outdoor spaces have a wide range of things to see and do including:

  • places to play like toddler and junior play areas and playing fields
  • sports facilities including tennis courts, sports pitches, multi-use games areas and bowling greens
  • places to enjoy a sit and a bite to eat, from cafés to picnic areas
  • wide open spaces and beautiful scenery to enjoy on various walking routes and nature walks

All of Doncaster's open spaces are covered by Public Spaces Protection Orders, this may affect how you exercise your dog. Detailed information is available at the PSPO webpage

Local parks and outdoor spaces

Looking for somewhere near you to keep the little ones occupied? Perhaps you're travelling to another area in Doncaster and want somewhere to enjoy time outdoors? There are lots of local parks and outdoor spaces across the borough you can visit.

Whilst local parks and outdoor spaces don't have as wide a range of facilities as our major parks, they're still home to great facilities like toddler and junior play areas, multi-use games areas and outdoor gym equipment.
