Knowle Park - a little more information
Set in the heart of the historic Knowle Village, the park proudly sits on the previous grounds of Longdon Hall. Popular throughout the year with families, a particular highlight is the Knowle Park annual music event, attracting picnicking people from the village and far further afield.
