Beautifully kept park. A lot to do- golf, boats, train ride, play area and bowls were enjoyed by our family. The cafe is lovely although a little pricey

“tucked away”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 22 August 2014

stanley park is just a 10,15 walk from town centre and has something for everyone,boating lake great walks,nice gardens.the cafe is pleasant although some of the staff are a bit stern.
as a local the park is very under used and very badly advertised lots of vistiors do not know about it ,hell is free for gods sake family friendly visititors could spend the day there with a ball take a picnic and not spend a penny.
come on blackpool council pull your finger out and get it better advertised for locals and visitors alike....such a waste
