Stanley Park Blackpool is an award winning Grade II* listed park a mile inland from the promenade. Voted best park in the UK twice, 2017 and 2019 in the Fields in Trust vote, it contains two large lakes, superb floral displays, top class sports facilities and many leisure facilities for all the family. We're proud to be able to work with Blackpool Council on maintaining this fine asset for our town.
