Thanks to our ancestors who planned and built the town, they included open green spaces and parks in St Annes – come and take a look around.
Open Spaces and Parks in St Annes
The wide open spaces of the seafront at St Annes are lined with very pretty gardens including flower and rose beds, and ornamental monumental statuary.
It’s where you’ll also find a dramatic waterfall that feeds the meandering system of ponds. These are the year-round home to the seafront ducks and their babies each spring.
Gardens and Parks in St Annes
Ashton Gardens is the large town park in St Annes. It’s easily accessible and only a stones throw from the town centre, just off Clifton Drive North.
It’s a beautifully restored and well maintained garden. When you are next at St Annes it’s well worth a walk through its magnificent gates to have a look at this park.
A park covering over 10 acres, it recently underwent major refurbishment with a £2m grant from the Heritage Lottery Fund. It’s also a grade II listed garden on English Heritage’s Register of Parks and Gardens of Special Historic Interest.
Ashton Gardens is the hub for St Annes Carnival each year. Along with historic buildings, the facilities include a bowling green, children’s play area, and stunning rose and display gardens.
Parks and Open Spaces in Lytham and St Annes include:
Blackpool North Road Playing Fields
Fairhaven Lake and Gardens
Hope Street Park
Lytham Memorial Gardens
Park View 4U
