Parks & Walks

Part of Southampton's five central parks, Houndwell Park lies to the south of Palmerston Park and is separated by Pound Tree Road. It boasts an impressive and adventurous play area inspired by the city’s historic city walls and maritime history. The play structure is known as The Titanic and features the replication of desert islands, sand and shipwrecks, encouraging imaginative, exciting and creative play.

The southern end of the lime tree avenue, which runs through the centre of East, Palmerston and Houndwell parks, is marked by the William Chamberlayne Gas Column. The Gas Column is a 50-feet high fluted Doric column, cast in iron at Tickell’s Foundry in Foundry Lane, Millbrook. It was subscribed as a tribute to William Chamberlayne, MP for the town 1818-1829.
