Houghton Hall Park
Houghton Regis may not be my favourite place but Houghton Hall Park is definitely one of the best things about Dunstable.
The 42 acre park has hard paths around the perimeter and through the middle with grass paths meandering round the grasslands. There are nature trails and small kids-activity areas dotted around.
More recently, a lottery-funded cafe opened up on the Eastern edge of the lark with meeting facilities and fantastically-priced snacks.
It’s a lovely destination park where dogs are warmly welcomed along with the local ParkRun.
