Whether it’s walking through the 33 hectares of mature oak and beech woodland, picnicking on the grass or playing in the fabulous children’s play area, there’s plenty in Centre Vale Park to help you enjoy the great outdoors.
You’ll find all-weather 5-a-side football pitches, bowling greens, a skate park, a cycle way, an outdoor gym, a conservatory and an animal house, which is open every day, between 10am and 4pm.
The play area includes a zip wire, a space net, an inclusive climbing unit and a fully inclusive roundabout.
Centre Vale Park is also home to Lucky the dog, who featured on a Channel 4 show hosted by TV illusionist Derren Brown, and gained a reputation for bringing luck to anyone who touched it. Lucky sits in Samuel Fielden’s room, in the remains of the old Centre Vale Mansion, within the park.
The channelled River Calder runs along the north-eastern boundary of the park, which has been awarded Green Flag status.
