The town council owns and maintains two community parks in Dinnington:
Coronation Park is situated off Laughton Road (the main street in Dinnington), opposite the Dinnington Resource Centre, and is accessible to pedestrians only through three separate gates located in the perimeter fence around the park.
Some seating is available in the park amongst the flower planters and lawns and the park plays host to the town’s Cenotaph which is well attended every year on Remembrance Sunday. The Cenotaph is illuminated by selective concealed lighting at night. If you know of a relative whose name does not appear on the cenotaph but you feel it should, please contact the Clerk to the Council.
The original pit wheel from the former Dinnington Colliery is centrally located in the Park in addition to the Miners Memorial Wall (also illuminated), Statue and Rose Garden as a permanent memorial to those who worked at the Colliery.
Leys Lane Pocket Park
Leys Lane Pocket Park is situated in a remote spot on the fringes of the parish boundary and, like Coronation Park, is a pleasant and quiet place away from it all to relax and enjoy the wildlife with views over the rolling countryside. Please note there is currently no seating in this park and plans are in place to make improvements to the park over the next few weeks and months.
