Bude Park is home to an outdoor gym, a modern playground, sports pitches and a multi-use games area. The park can be accessed via Bude Road or Ennerdale.

Bude Park if flat and the courses make use of open playing fields. There are some wooded areas to the southern end of the park. There are some prepared pathways that can be used but it is expected that participants on the longer courses would need to be able to cross the grassed playing fields.
