Congleton Park byelaws

The mature tree lined avenues and location next to the River Dane make Congleton Park the ideal location to unwind. The park contains numerous benches, some providing views along the River Dane. The river is one of the most natural in England and is an idyllic place to sit and soak up the atmosphere.

The park was originally designed by Edward Kemp and was opened on the 29 May 1871. It was designed around Kemp's three principles - the geometrical, mixed and picturesque. These elements still remain today and have been comprehensively restored, for more information please visit our The History of Congleton Park page

On the northern edge of the park, Town Wood is a Grade A Site of Biological Interest and contains many nationally important plants. Walks throughout the wood change monthly as there is always something new to see with the changing seasons and the views across the park and town can be spectacular. Following the park restoration programme in 2004/05 the park is a vibrant modern park, which respects its heritage.
