Hurst Grange Park

Hurst Grange Park, one of South Ribble’s finest landscapes, is located in the heart of Penwortham town centre and is open all year for visitors to enjoy. Split into two distinct areas, one characterizes traditional parkland with rolling hills, mature woodlands and specimen trees, whilst the other includes wildflower meadows and rugged pond habitat which contain records of the prestigious Great Crested Newt, an incredibly rare and protected amphibian species. Further information on the species found in the park can be found on the numerous interpretation boards located around the park. Seasonal events and activities specific to the park are lead by an on site Park Ranger and a dedicated team of local volunteers meet regularly to look after the park and conserve its wildlife.

At 15.5 hectares, its large size also enables visitors to enjoy a wide range of activities including a large, all inclusive playground with picnic benches, high quality footpaths and cycle links, sport pitches and a woodland trim trail. The park is also popular with walkers, joggers, dog walkers and family activities and sets the stage for large annual events such as the popular Penwortham Town Gala.

Easily accessible by public transport, bus routes and by car, the park offers free facilities to park with entrance points throughout the park for cyclist and pedestrian access.
