Situated between London Road and Parkway, Stoke Park is Guildford’s largest and best-known park. It is an extremely diverse and well-used green space, popular with residents and visitors alike. It is also a Green Flag award winning park.
The park and its woodland have remained more or less intact since they were laid out in the C18th. In those days there was a manor house complete with walled garden and icehouse. Heritage features that still exist today include the 18th century walled garden which now encloses tennis courts and formal flowerbeds; a boating pond; a paddling pool built in the early 1930's; a crazy golf course, a children's play area; a sensory garden and a rose garden.
The park caters for people of all ages and abilities. It has sports pitches as well as a very popular skate park.
The main section of the park is open rolling grassland, which due to its vast size, is ideal for major regional events (the music festival and the Surrey County Agricultural Show).
Beware there are a few brambles on the way to the cache
The cache is a fairly large Tupperware which has a bit of swag and a logbook and a travel bug.
Please leave feedback about it and possibly if you have any other ideas for a series of geocaches in the guildford area.
Please take photos of yourself with the cache
We really enjoy the anecdotes and experiences from visiting our caches so we'd rather not see simply 'TFTC' or :-)
