Entrance to Ward Jackson Park

Ward Jackson Park is one of the most original in the North East region. It is listed in the National Register of Historic Parks & Gardens because of its collection of Victorian and Edwardian features. A project to restore and develop the park was recently completed returning the park to its original splendor complete with a magnificent lake set in a Victorian landscape.

For the more wild at heart, you can visit the Woodland Walk to enjoy the fascinating wildlife the park has to offer or the play area which contains plenty of activity stations to occupy the kids. Complete your day with a visit to The Place in the Park for a well deserved cuppa and a snack.

The Friends of Ward Jackson Park organise a range of brilliant events and activities and raise funds for their own Park projects. For information regarding the Friends of Ward Jackson Park contact 01429 262641.

Ward Jackson Park is located at the junction of Park Avenue and Elwick Road
