Towneley Park is the largest park in Burnley with a total of 180 hectares of landscaped parkland surrounding Towneley Hall and Museum. It has a long history as a private estate, with much of its current landscape the result of work carried out in the late 18th Century by Charles Towneley.
The park and former family residence, Towneley Hall were purchased by Burnley Corporation in 1902 and have been in public use ever since. It is widely and affectionately known locally as "the jewel in Burnley's crown".
With an extensive range of events, activities and exhibitions Towneley provides something for every visitor.
There are exhibitions, woodland walks, sculpture trails, an award-winning permaculture project Offshoots, play areas, sports pitches, two golf courses, pitch and putt, ornamental gardens, cafe and a gift shop.
Visitors can pop in to Towneley Hall Art Gallery and Museum and view the paintings in its care.
Main entrance to Towneley Park and to the hall is off Todmorden Road, Burnley.
