Queens Park

Parks & Walks

Queens Park is a hidden gem just a stone's throw away from the town centre (Town Hall end). 

The park is open daily throughout the year although all the gates are locked at dusk; details of the park opening times can be found below:

This park has everything except playground equipment:

  • Large lake for feeding the scores of ducks and swans, with many benches around the lake to relax with the view
  • Large open space for kids to run around in, which is home to many events during non Covid times
  • Beautifully maintained trees, flora and fauna, and pathways 
  • The "secret garden", a sunken garden set behind some bushes (formally the rose garden)
  • Garden of Remembrance Cafe (not currently open at time of going to press due to restoration works)

You can always take your own food and drinks too and have a little picnic in the park.

Toilets on site.

No on site parking but so close to town you could park in one of the many car parks

There are 4 main entrances to the park:

  • The oldest entrance, designed by J Loring-Morgan, is situated on Groundwell Road to the north of the site and was completed by 1950
  • The second entrance, completed by 1953, is situated at the junction of Durham Street and Lincoln Street
  • The two other entrances form part of the second phase of the park's layout and are situated on Drove Road, in the far north-east corner of the site, and York Road to the north.
