Anstey Park offers 32 acres of parkland and leisure activities providing visitors with a wealth of sports including cricket, football, rugby, tennis, netball and skateboarding. It’s very much a community park and often hosts events such as fun runs and fireworks displays. The town’s history can be explored on a number of circular walks. The Holybourne walk takes you past some ancient buildings, with glimpses of the River Wey as you go. On the Flood Meadows walk you’ll be able to see the historic watercress beds and enjoy splendid views of the open countryside. Lavender fields are another beautiful feature of Alton; Hartley Park Farm grows four varieties and sells a range of lavender products. If golf is your chosen pastime, you can head for Worldham Golf Club, just outside Alton. It has a beautiful 18-hole parkland course on the edge of the South Downs National Park, a reminder that in Alton, open countryside is never very far away.
