About the event...


The park as we know it today is largely thanks to Henry WF Bolckow – iron and steel industrialist and Middlesbrough's first MP and Mayor. This year marks the 90th anniversary of the official opening in May 1928. Councillor Thomas Stewart gave the park to the people of Middlesbrough, as a "public possession, open and accessible to all the people for all time’"

In addition to the existing aspects of the park participants will learn about some almost forgotten features, for example the decorative boathouse, ice house, sun pavilion and grotto. The use of many of the buildings by the college will also be explained.
