Burnley's Parks and open spaces

Burnley Council owns and manages six Green Flag parks in the borough, offering a wide range of recreation from beautifully landscaped gardens and boating lakes, bowling greens to skate parks and playgrounds.

The parks provide visitors and residents with lots to see and do including  various collections and exhibitions, playgrounds, cafes, gardens, historical landscapes, ancient woodlands, gift shops and much more. Burnley's parks are great for both walking and exploring. 

The council also maintains over 500 hectares of informal open space and woodlands including:

  • Byerden Holme Linear Park (entrance off Daneshouse Road, Burnley)
  • Rowley Lake and woodland (bottom of Rowley Lane, Burnley)
  • Healy Heights (off Healy Wood Road, Rosehill Road, Burnley)
  • Grove Lane Wood (Grove Lane, Padiham)
  • Cemetery Wood (running between Accrington Road and Billington Road, Burnley)

It also owns several areas of land which are designated for allotment use in the Burnley and Padiham area.

The Green Spaces team are also responsible for grass cutting and some tree work in the borough. The team also runs and manages golf courses, sports pitches, bowling greens and courts.  

We work in partnership with a range of organisations, from the local Friends of the Parks groups, to Burnley's award winning Permaculture Project Offshoots.

For more information on all of the above please use relevant links provided on the right hand side of this page.

For park events please visit Pointme.org website or follow council's Facebook and Twitter pages. 

 

Towneley hall

From the Priest’s Hole to the attic Towneley Hall is fascinating with period rooms covering several centuries of life at the hall. See the cat fast asleep by the range in the Victorian kitchen, stroll along the long gallery past bedrooms dating back to the 16th century, imagine the glamorous parties held in the regency rooms or have a quiet moment in the Towneley chapel. Find out more about this iconic landmark here
