About your park 


Bruce Castle Park covers 8 hectares of parkland. Its rich history dates back to the early 11th century. 

The park was created from the remains of the ancient Bruce Castle family estate, purchased by the council in 1892.  

Bruce Castle Museum, located in the park, is a Grade I listed 16th century manor house. It houses the borough’s local history collections and archives and has been open since 1927.
