Anchorsholme Park

This park is a wide open space against the seafront and promenade at Princes Way, on the approach to Cleveleys.

From the most northern end of Queens Promenade at the tram stop and public toilets at Anchorsholme, Princes Way carries on against the seawall along the promenade to Cleveleys.

The main road and tram tracks continue through the centre of Cleveleys, and in the triangle between you’ll find the lovely Anchorsholme Park.

More about Anchorsholme Park

There’s a 9 hole putting course and 18 hole pitch and putt – both of which are very popular. Here, you can practise your swing and pretend you are the next Tiger Woods, no matter what you standard of play is!

Closer to the centre of the park, the neatly clipped open grass gives way to the main facilities, where you’ll find the heart of the park and the cafe, park cabin, bowling greens and children’s play area.

There are four tennis courts and a soft surfaced children’s playground with the usual swings and climbing equipment. We bumped into Roger, with his grandson Oliver. Grandad lives just around the corner and comes here a lot to enjoy the fresh air and company of other parents.

All dogs are welcome - please clean up and respect this lovely clean space.

Anchorsholme Park is also lucky to have a Bowling and Social Club, and the club has about 150 members who enjoy the use of the two crown greens. Mark and Darren are two new members to the club, although they have been bowling for many years.

The icing on the cake for locals and visitors is the cafe which serves hot and cold drinks, food and ice creams, and of course the public toilets! You can never have too many toilets and it’s nice to know where they are and there are some here!

Friends of Anchorsholme Park
Friends of Anchorsholme Park

A new Friends Group has been formed for Anchorsholme Park, and they are embarking on a plan for the future, to further improve the park by adding more planting and beds, plus additional facilities. You can find out more about the Friends of Anchorsholme Park here, in the section about community groups.

There are community events held throughout the year in the park, like Fun Days and tournaments for the golf, and now that the Friends Group are getting going it's fair to say that they will be holding fundraisers and such like as they get on with their programme of improvements.

Currently the Friends Group are involving the local community in growing plants to donate to the park, painting up the boat and planting it, and pulling together to make the park bloom!

So why don't you pop along and take a look at this lovely park for everyone to enjoy.
