Hillfield Park

What's Here

To the south of the High Street lies Hillfield Park, complete with a fenced in dog walking area this is an ideal spot to let your furry friends off their leads to run, sniff and scent to their hearts content.  

A well-maintained children’s play park, contained for added safely, includes an adventure trail and climbing wall. You’ll be hard pressed to sit and watch the kids play as the swings may just be too inviting!

The brightly coloured and beautifully painted seal, placed next to the car park, forms part of the Selsey Seal Art Trail. This trail is funded by a public arts grant and was created to promote the exploration of Selsey and it's rich culture, heritage and natural habitats. The Seal in Hillfield Park was designed by Chichester College art students Carleigh Barker and Rosie Harris and serves as a bug hotel, conserving natural wonders in this biodiverse area. The bug boxes contained within were created by the children from Seal Academy and Medmerry Primary School.

Close by on the High Street, there are fabulous eating options to suit all tastes. You might be so full after sampling the food you may have to come back to the park and run off that great meal. Luckily, Hillfield Park has plenty of space to do just that.


Further south, towards the sea on Hillfield Road, there are public toilets with disabled facilities. These are closed at night.

Public Transport

The Stagecoach no. 51 from Chichester stops just after the turning for Latham Road. Walk south for a short distance, past Green Lane, and you will come to Hillfield Park on the left-hand side of the road.


A contained play park makes Hillfield Park the perfect place for little ones to burn off some excess energy.

Dog Friendly

You can find a designated dog walking area, fenced off for your four-legged friends safety and enjoyment. Please keep them on the lead when you are walking in the main park. It is an offence not to pick up after your dog. There is a dog waste bin located in Hillfield Park.

Picnic Spot

Pick up some goodies from the nearby High Street or bring your own picnic to spread out a blanket and enjoy this area.
