|Becket's Park is a traditional park formerly known as Cow Meadow, running along the bank of the River Nene it was originally designed for promenading.|
It was re-named in the early 1930's after the famous Arch Bishop Thomas a Becket who is quite well acknowledged round here.
There are many facilities around the park, including tennis courts, a play area, marina, lovely river walk and a cafe.
We've not yet visited the cafe or walked along the river, but as this is so close to the centre of Northampton T and I often visit when The Hubs is at the barbers.
This is a great green space a stones throw from the centre of the town, we are so lucky to still have so many areas like this, in which to play, explore and relax.
Here you can see all my Out and about in Northamptonshire posts.
I'm always on the look out for new places, so please do give me suggestions if you are local!
