Built in the early 1900s by resident millionaire James Williamson, Williamson Park provides a touch of nature in the middle of the city. In addition to a lake and waterfall, you’ll also find a cafe, sundial, cycle path, public toilets, and many walking trails. Enjoy the view across Morecambe Bay from Ashton Memorial--made in honor of Williamson’s wife--the highest point in Lancaster. The park is free, but pay a bit extra to visit the butterfly house, reptile house, and aviary.
