Acton Park is a landscaped parkland with mature specimen trees and gently undulating expanses of grass areas with recent tree planting. There are also areas of ornamental shrubberies, and wild bulb planting. The lake provides the centre feature of the park.
The park has play provision for Toddlers and Juniors alike. The bowling green is home to the Cunliffe Bowling Club, but remains open to the public when matches are not taking place. The bowling season runs from April – September. There are two bitumen macadam tennis courts in the park. The courts are free to use.
Native wild meadow flowers have been planted to the existing grass to assist in providing habitats for insects and other fauna, increasing the bio-diversity of the parkland.
