Grab your goggles, because Mundy Playing fields boasts a large open air water play area for children (and their adults) to splash around in. Bring a picnic rug and sit on one of the grassy bank slopes to get a good (and dry!) view of your children paddling in the splash area. The park also has a well-equipped children’s play area, featuring a zip wire, embankment slides, roundabout, climbing frame, and balance bars. For those looking to get or stay fit, there is a range of adult exercise equipment, football pitches, a sports ground, and tennis courts. Located just off the High Street, you can easily pop to the shops for refreshments, but there is usually an ice cream van on site.
Mundy Playing fields were named after Violet Mundy, a local woman who generously bequeathed £6000 to Thornbury Parish Council in 1934 (an enormous sum, in those days) to create these much-loved playing fields.
