Friends of Ward Jackson Park

About the Park

Ward Jackson Park is one of the most original in the North East region and is listed in the National Register of Historic Parks & Gardens because of its collection of Victorian and Edwardian features. A project to restore and develop the park was completed in 2001 returning the park to its original splendour complete with a magnificent lake set in a Victorian landscape.

For the wild at heart, why not visit the Woodland Walk to enjoy the fascinating wildlife the park has to offer, or the play area which contains plenty of activity stations to occupy the liveliest of children.

About the Friends Group

Friends of Ward Jackson Park are a community group dedicated to keeping Ward Jackson Park beautiful and improving the park for everyone to enjoy. They host four very popular annual events, which not only provide a great opportunity for people to enjoy the park, but raise funds to ensure the park is maintained in the interests of the people of Hartlepool. They work in partnership with Hartlepool Borough Council’s Parks and Countryside team and works in partnership with HBC Parks and Counntryside team and The Wild Green Spaces volunteers.

Recent projects have been the restoration of the fountain and creating a new picnic area. New members are always welcome to this lively, friendly and successful group. Membership is a small annual subscription of £5 per household.
