Stanton Park

COVID-19 - changing rules on exercising

Stanton Park is open daily for exercise from 8.00am and the gates are locked approximately 30 minutes after sunset. There is no charge for parking.

Stanton Park is owned by Swindon Borough Council. The park contains a Scheduled Ancient Monument- the site of a Roman Villa (although there are no visible remains).

It is the holder of a Green Flag award, which describes it as an 'inspiring and largely unspoiled example of a country park'. Nature Reserve status was also acquired for 36 hectares of the park that includes the lake, woodland and grassland.

The council's Ranger Team manages the park with the help of the Volunteer Rangers and other interested groups.

  • remnants of ancient woodland
  • hedgerows
  • wildflower meadows
  • wetlands
  • a lake, streams and a series of recently restored ponds

  • a mixture of mature, specimen hardwood trees

These habitats are home to a large variety of wildlife, including:

  • birds of prey
  • wildfowl
  • amphibians
  • invertebrates
  • large mammals including roe deer and badgers
  • owls
  • bats
  • moths
