Grosvenor & Hilbert Park – Tunbridge Wells

Grosvenor & Hilbert Park,  Tunbridge Wells TN1 2HT

Grosvenor Recreation Ground, now Grosvenor & Hilbert Park, was Tunbridge Wells’ first public park. It has diverse habitats ranging from the formal Upper Lake with it’s ducks, moorhens, black headed gulls and kingfisher, though to the wetlands area, and into the woods where there is an abundance of bird and insect life.

The Cross Pollination Project beds are down the hill from the Hilbert Road gate (by the Oast House). We chose an area in the park that is by the entrance into the Hilbert allotments so the pollinators will have plenty of foraging opportunities!
