Daisy Dip is a large open space between Swaythling and Bassett and links to Bassett Wood Greenway. At almost eight hectares the open space is divided by Lobelia Road, with Carnation Road running along its northern edge and Bluebell Road along its southern edge. The western section has about 1.3 hectares that is close mown and ideal for play and picnics. Another 2.5 hectares is managed for wildlife, with a lush wetland meadow, fed by a stream which runs through the park, in the valley. There is also grassland, bramble banks and woodland margins.

There is an active friends group, Friends of Daisy Dip, that organise community events and litter picks.
