Southampton has a wealth of parks and green open spaces; from the award winning Grade II listed central parks located in the city centre to the wilder open spaces of Southampton Common and the Greenways.

We welcome responsible dog owners in all our open spaces, but please pick up your waste and deposit in the waste bins. Dogs are not allowed in the children’s play areas or sports areas.

Barbecues are currently permitted in our parks and open spaces although this is subject to change at short notice. Please check park notice boards for further information.To find more information about using the parks see our parks A-Z

Fishing is permitted, for free, providing you have the correct rod licence. Some bodies of water are covered by the 'closed season', March 15 - June 15 inclusive. Please check Where Can I Fish for more information .
