The Gates

Probably the finest feature in Haslam Park is the magnificent lake which is linked to the Lancaster Canal by a natural waterfall. Ranked by wildflower meadows, park benches and the home of hundreds of wildfowl, the lakeside provides an attractive place for a family picnic on warm summer days. There is also a special platform which can be used to accommodate disabled anglers.

Haslam Park duck pond

Donated to the Borough in 1908 by Mary Haslam, the park has one of the finest colonnades of Lime trees to be found in the North West, and links two traditional park entrances which have Grade II listed ornamental gates.
