  • I loved this place as it was lovely and tranquil and you wouldn't think you were in Blackpool when you come here and I would happily return here next time I am in Blackpool.

  • Just way too pleasant for words... The flower beds are a credit to the team and the relaxing atmosphere...they have put the kids play area far away from the serinity areas ..the beautiful water with watching the fun families in the boats as water birds are here there and everywhere.. Is a delight.. The tranquil area of playing bowls and so much more to enjoy .. Makes you wish rain wasn't part of English Northern weather..I'd go a lot more then, if I could!
  • Fantastic park with something for everyone. The heronry is a fascinating natural phenomena and there is so much wildlife to enjoy. Dogs are welcome and can play off leash in most areas. A lovely art deco cafe aswell. Can't fault this fabulous public space.
  • Lovely park. Really well kept. Nice and big for walks and exploring. Loads of facilities. Athletics track & field, tennis boating lake with swan boats. Fountains. Rose gardens. Plenty of benches dotted around.
  • Well maintained grounds with a really pleasant atmosphere. Perfect for families and couple alike. Hire a pedalo or a motorboat, or even get a licence to fish from the lake. Blackpool zoo is nearby so it makes for a great day out.
  • Now this is a beautiful park boating lake playground bandstand art deco cafe fountain could go on for a long time best way to find out about this place is to give it a try .
