The impressive, beautifully landscaped play area is the main attraction in this small park. It’s a wonderful play environment for children of all ages, with features such as a rope bridge, zip wires, balancing wires, sand play and, crowning the skyline, a 'Hill Fort' made of vertical pillars of green oak.
There is also more traditional play equipment such as swings, slides and roundabouts. Good footpaths wind their way through the park, and there’s plenty of picnic tables.
Romano Park also has a Mutli-Use Games Area and if you prefer some peace and quiet then seek out Barwick Pond Local Nature Reserve which is adjacent to the park. It’s a delightful spot and home to great crested newts; hence the ‘newt seat’ designed by artist Andrew McKeown with help from children from nearby Barley Fields and Myton Park Primary Schools.
Located in the heart of Ingleby Barwick off Lamb Lane to the rear of Tesco. The Barwick Lane cycleway provides easy access on foot or bike.
