“In the presence of nature, a wild delight runs through the man, in spite of real sorrows”Ralph Waldo Emerson
The locals of Blackpool are proud beyond words of Stanley Park…. and rightly so….. its won numerous awards over the years and is a lovely park to visit! Its located outside the centre of the town, we’d say probably half hour walk to be safe but it does have regular bus routes to it and would be pretty cheap to get to in a cab ………with the added bonus that its beside other favourite Blackpool attractions, the Zoo and Model Village!
Grade II listed Stanley Park consists of everything you’d expect to find in a decent park, a lovely lake to wander round, beautiful gardens, a great art deco cafe, miniature golf and of course sporting facilities including bike tracks, skating ramps and even a 400 metre running track. Full of history and wonderful sights and sounds, if you’ve come to Blackpool and want to unwind, its a great choice!
