Wild Park :: TQ3307
Moulsecoomb Wild Park was purchased by the corporation as part of the Moulsecoomb estate in February 1925. Over 200 acres are now leased as farm land, but the 90-acre park, apart from the playing fields in the valley, has been left as open downland and therefore in its wild state. It was formally opened by the mayor, Charles Teasdale, on 30 June 1925.

An interesting nature trail starts at the steps adjacent to the pavilion, while the access road extends nearly half a mile up the valley known as Moulsecoomb Pit towards the summer dry ski-slope.
