Avenham and Miller Parks

S Meadow Ln, Preston PR1 8JT, UK – 01772 907737

Avenham Park is stunning and I enjoy walking my puppy there all the time! However; just a WARNING TO ALL PET OWNERS! Today my 5 month old puppy got hit and ran over by a bike on the bottom path along the river. We rushed him to the vets and luckily he was fine bar a swollen paw and a few minor bruises! He was a very lucky puppy! Even though this was an accident I just want to warm all pet owners to be wary as 'some' people on bikes do not stick to the 5 mph speed limit. My puppy is a perfect example of how a terrible accident can happen within just a few seconds. To bike riders in the area: please slow down! No where is that important that you need to put other people or animals in danger! My baby was very lucky today but this may not be the case next time.

Lovely park, poorly run. Boat loads of staff on a week day. Then when its busy not a soul to do any work. Always full of trash at the weekends and bank holidays.

Haslam Park

Bristow Ave, Preston PR2 1JE, UK – 01772 906471

It has a nice park, outdoor gym, nets for football and basketball. It is also a lovely area for a nice walk. Oh and there is a few climbing trees for the kids :-)

Beautiful park, good for dogs and children. A big pond and stream. Woods and foot paths. Access to the canal

Ribbleton Park

1 Heaton Pl, Preston PR1 4TT, UK

It's a lovely green area. Unfortunately, a makeover by the Council I believe, has sterilised the real park feeling, they've cut away all the shrubbery which makes me wonder about the birds that used to nest and the squirrels cover. It's just too antisepticly clean. Not impressed with the vast lottery funding spent this way, personally speaking. However, a quick canvas around some people (not scientific evidence ) and some are in favour of the new look, with solar lighting as they feel safer in the evening times. I remain unconvinced.

I'm not sure what it's like any more, I don't frequent it much. It only picked it up as I live near.

Great website!. Click below to find gardens open during the year around Fulwood or Lancashire. There are photos and lots of detail about the garden.
