Located in the heart of a conservation area, People’s Park has been revitalised and restored with new facilities.
There’s a children’s play area, visitor’s centre, bandstand, water features, pavilion and public toilets, and disabled access is provided through the college entrance.
Events are put on through the year, including brass bands and gardening workshops.
It’s also one of the best surviving examples of a Joseph Paxton Park. Created in 1857, it was donated to the people of Halifax by Sir Francis Crossley, and has been awarded the Green Flag status.
