Hotham Park is a public park in the seaside town of Bognor Regis, West Sussex, England, in the United Kingdom. It was established by the founder of Bognor Sir Richard Hotham, who formerly resided at Hotham Park House (built 1792) which still stands today. Since becoming a public park in 1947 Hotham Park continues to be a popular local attraction for residents of the town as well as holiday makers. The park is located nearby to Butlins and the town centre.
In 2018 an adventure golf course opened, named Widforest Falls and themed on forest animals from around the world.
Hotham Park's playarea was refurbished in 2018 with the support of the Hotham Park Heritage Trust. The refurbishment includes a new ability swing for wheelchair users which can be accessed using a RADAR key. 
Hotham Park Cafe opened on 22 July 2015 following a £400,000 investment in the park by Arun District Council. Designed by architect Phil Brown and built by Falcon Homes the cafe was 'Highly Commended' at the Sussex Heritage Awards in 2017.
Other amenities in the park include a boating lake, miniature railway, picnic areas, wildlife pond, arboretum and formal planting. Hotham Park is maintained and managed by Arun District Council in partnership with the Hotham Park Heritage Trust and principle contractors Tivoli Group Limited.
The 'Discovery Garden', an informal garden with sensory plants and learning zone, is used weekly by a local Forest School to teach.
Bognor Regis Parkrun operates each week, often attracting over 300 runners.
