Parks and Promenade

Lancaster City Council is launching a campaign for everyone to 'Take Pride in Your Park'. Read all about how you can get involved by visiting the campaign page here.


Morecambe promenade offers stunning panoramic views across Morecambe Bay.

Nearby Happy Mount Park retains a quiet relaxing atmosphere, with ornamental gardens, a cafe, and a modern splash park for children of all ages.

The Ashton Memorial dominates the Lancaster skyline, sitting in the extensive grounds of Williamson Park.
