About Western Park

The site was purchased for development as a park in 1897 and to this day Western Park is the largest park in Leicester, offering 72 hectares to explore.

The main drive features an avenue of trees which were laid out for the inaugural opening in 1899. Within easy reach of the drive are the main built facilities that include play areas, Pétanque, bowls greens, tennis courts and ample parking.

The graceful contours of the park are a mosaic of meadows, woodland plantations and formal areas still retaining the country feel. This diversity creates a haven for a wide variety of fauna and flora.

The park offers a wide range of activities that include a spacious well equipped play area, a woodland walk and a bandstand where visiting musicians perform during the summer months. The park has a cycle trail, and plays host to an annual family fun day.
