The development of the park was funded by the sale of plots for the construction of housing. Consequently the park is fringed by Victorian housing, some of which is currently empty and derelict. The area has been awarded Conservation Area status, a legal protection against development to protect and preserve the Victorian architecture.Newsham Park is the first individual work of the landscape architect Edward Kemp, an understudy of Joseph Paxton who was responsible for the grounds at Chatsworth House and the design of Birkenhead Park, a city park that became a working model for the creation of Manhattan's Central Park. As a result of this historic connection, as well as the park's intrinsic natural beauty, it has been awarded Grade II* listed status.

  • It's a beautiful park, the grass is well kept, there are plenty of dog bins, children's play parks, a skate park, several large ponds, many used for fishing, a bandstand, a small shop and an outdoor gym setup with a table tennis table. Police are often seen around the park to keep the peace and whilst there can be troublesome spots, these can be avoided by not going to the park late.
