Frickley Country Park is a former colliery to the immediate south of South Elmsall which is now an attractive open space. It has over 7 miles of footpaths and cycle-ways, giving you great opportunities to walk, run, cycle and escape in this natural environment, as well as giving you fantastic views over the countryside and villages.

There’s no need to leave your four-legged friend at home either, there’s plenty of space for dogs to run about and burn off some energy.

This park has a wonderful mix of open meadows, wetlands and woodlands, providing homes for a wide variety of birds, butterflies and other wildlife to thrive. The park also boasts several intriguing work of art which hark back to the land’s industrial past. More than 70,000 trees have been planted, which are maturing into attractive woodland.

There is good access for people with limited mobility; however some of the slopes on the former tip are steep due to the lay of the land.

Car parking for Frickley Country Park is available off Doncaster Road alongside the Frickley Lane bridleway.
