In June 2007, land owned by the Parish Council was set aside for transformation into a Pocket Park. Local funding from Northamptonshire County Council, South Northants Council and Hartwell Parish Council has allowed the development of this field into a park. Hartwell Pocket Park officially opened in June 2009 and is also known as Ashwood Acre . The first 5 year management plan has been completed with good progress in meeting the original aims of the park. The original planting has grown steadily and the range of wild flowers and wildlife is increasing. It is managed by a working group of the Parish Council and volunteers from Hartwell Parish. The park regularly wins national awards.
