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 and Archive (external link), 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 1906.
Green Flag Award
First awarded the prestigious Green Flag Award in 2003, Bruce Castle Park has kept it ever since.
A magnificent ancient oak tree dominates the northern side of the park. It's believed to be about 500 years old and came runner up in the Woodland Trust’s Tree of the Year award for England in 2018.
Holocaust Memorial Garden
The park is home to a Holocaust Memorial Garden, honouring those killed by Nazis in the second world war.
The park has an active friends group. Find out more:
