Hartshill Park is used for a number of events each year and is a vital green space in a busy and large residential area of Oakengates. Facilities within the park include tennis courts, a play area, an outdoor gym, football pitches and a bandstand whilst there are a mixture of trees, herbaceous planting and winter and summer bedding schemes. The park was built after the Miners Welfare Fund arranged for a colliery spoil heap to be removed.

The entrance to the park features War Memorial gates which were built in the late-1950s. The gates remember those from Oakengates who fell during World War I and plaques on the stone pillars list 53 names. Wreathes are laid by the community at the gates each Remembrance Sunday.
