Queens Park in Crewe is renowned as one of the finest Victorian Parks in the North West.
It is a traditional Victorian Park currently undergoing renovations to bring her back to her former glory. Within her 45 acres are walkways, trees, shrubs, planting, children’s play area, crown green bowling, ornamental lake, grassed areas, memorials and lakeside pavillion. Originally given to the people of the town by the London and North Western Railway Company, she is steeped in history with a true Crewe engineering background.
Despite current renovations Queens Park is well worth a visit with Play programmes and a full programme of Summer Entertainment for all to enjoy. Refurbishment plans consist of a £6.5 million transformation, which includes support grant funding from the Heritage Lottery Fund valued at £2.7 million, with the remaining investment from WREN and Cheshire East Council.
