Selsey has lots of open spaces dotted around the town, all with something to offer whether you are looking for somewhere to spend the day or just to have a quick play in the park.

Explore all of Selsey's open spaces and find your favourite!

Manor Green Park, located towards the north of Selsey, is a popular open space with a variety of facilities for you to explore and enjoy.

A mixture of close mown grass and wild meadow, a sensory garden, a fenced dog walking space, plenty of play equipment for people to run around and enjoy.

East Beach Pond is an oasis of nature and tranquility with mature trees offering shade on hot sunny days.

The pond and surrounding land is rich in plant life with 30 species of trees and shrubs including Mulberries planted in commemoration of the D-Day Mulberry Harbours.

East Beach Green is an expanse of green space running parallel to the beach, split into clear zones.

It is home to a play park with a range of inclusive play equipment and a large area to play ball games, fly kites or just to let the kids run free, and there's also a free of charge skate park and BMX track.

Oval field is the perfect spot to picnic, relax with a book or just gaze out to sea by day. At night it becomes the perfect place in Selsey for star gazing.

Situated by Selsey’s secluded sandy beach and right next to the famous Selsey Bill, this area is rewarded with some of the longest daylight hours in the country.

To the south of the High Street lies Hillfield Park. With a fenced in dog walking area its an ideal spot to let your pets off their leads to run.

A well-maintained children’s play park is contained for added safety and includes an adventure trail and climbing wall.

Open all year round; home to the Selsey Cricket Club; the ground is the perfect spot during the season to sit with a picnic and enjoy the thwack of leather on willow.

If you feel a bit more energetic, the Recreation Ground is home to various pieces of static fitness equipment including a cross trainer, cycle bike and walker.
