Memorial Park

Bringing Memorial Park to life

Memorial Park is a Grade II listed park situated in the middle of Fleetwood. Designed and built in 1925 by renowned town planner Sir Patrick Abercrombie, it is unique in that the entire grounds were created in commemoration of the First World War, unlike most conventional architectural memorials, and it is one of only four listed war memorial parks and gardens in the country.

The park has recently received a comprehensive restoration thanks to £2.4m funding from the Heritage and Big Lottery Funds. Essential conservation work has been carried out including restoration of the war memorial, entrances, pond, pathways and pavilion; we've created a greater range of sports and play facilities including a multi-use games area and Parkour equipment in addition to the traditional bowling greens and tennis courts; and there's a programme of events and activities running alongside.

For more information about the restoration read our blog or email the Parks team at parks@wyre.gov.uk
