Stanley Park is Blackpool's most significant park and at 256 acres, it provides one third of Blackpool's green space. The Thomas Mawson designed and Grade II listed park has enjoyed continued popularity since its opening in 1926 and contains everything that any local community or out-of-town visitor could possibly wish for. There is a dazzling array of ornamental gardens, large boating lake and woodlands as well as a number of significant historical landmarks such as the Cocker Memorial Clock Tower and Art Deco Café. The park also contains superb sporting and recreational facilities including Stanley Park Golf Course, Blackpool Sports Centre, Blackpool Cricket Ground and Athletic Arena, not to mention numerous outdoor pitches, greens and courts.
