Buile Hill Park
A Grade II listed park, Buile Hill is the largest and most popular park in the city.
The park has a long and varied history, with links to many important historical figures.
L.S. Lowry, a one time local rent collector regularly visited the park before gaining recognition for his works of art and Frances Hodgson Burnett, the author of the classic children's novel "The Secret Garden" was rumoured to have written the book during one of her many visits to Buile Hill Mansion.
Among the parks many attractions include an 18 hole pitch and putt course, tennis courts, outdoor gym equipment, picnic areas and a children's play area.
Buile Hill Park has recently been included within the Register of Parks and Gardens of Special Historic Interest in England and Wales and the Friends of Buile Hill Park are committed to the continued future development of the park.
