The Phillips Memorial Park, Godalming
The Phillips Memorial Park is Green Flag Award winning and covers 4.5 hectares (11 acres) and runs from the Borough Road bridge in Godalming to Bridge Road (near the Library), and includes The Burys Field. The grounds offer paths with seats and a pleasant walk by the river.
Please be aware that, as of Monday 6 February 2017, works to improve the park's footpaths will take place for around five weeks. As a result there will be some closures but diversion routes will be sign-posted on site.
