Ellington park a big open park for anyone to go in, Ellington park is only 0.8 miles away from Newington about a 10 minute walk.

The Friends of Ellington Park is a group of local residents and park users committed to improving the facilities and environment of Ellington Park in Ramsgate, Kent.

By raising the profile of the park and through fundraising events, working together with the neighbourhood and local Council authorities, we aim to revitalise the park for everyone, creating a place that is safe and enjoyable.

The group was formed five years ago by two police community support officers and, ever since the very first meeting, has striven to be the catalyst that pulls the community together to achieve our communal goals based on the opinions and feedback suggested by the users, visitors and neighbours to the park.

History of Ellington park

Ellington House and estate was once in the ownership of the Sprackling family.

In 1653, Adam Sprackling was hanged for the murder of his wife and six dogs and is allegedly buried (near his wife) in St. Laurence Church.

In 1892, the house and grounds were conveyed to the Ramsgate Corporation and turned into Ellington Park.

In 1962, this was the venue for a pageant to commemorate the 900th anniversary of St. Laurence Church.
