Tilgate Park has so much to offer from stunning lakes, lawns and gardens to miles of woodland and bridleways for long leisurely walks.

Dogs are not permitted in the nature centre, Walled Garden and play areas.
Dogs must be kept on a lead whilst walking around the main lake and are not permitted to enter the water.
Self-service dog wash
Discover Tilgate Park's self-service dog wash, conveniently located by the main car park. This easy-to-use facility is ideal for washing your dog. The machine provides warm water, a range of shampoos and a two-speed dryer.
The dog wash is owned and operated by Polygon Pets.
Tilgate Park Tree Trail
Tilgate Park’s Tree Trail picks out 30 of the best champion trees of their particular species. There are trees from China, Africa, Europe and America.
Each trail tree has been identified with its name and a number which children and adults can have fun finding.
