The beautiful surroundings of Astley Park are the perfect place for people to relax. After opening in 1924 the 43.75 hectare park, which was bequeathed to the people of Chorley by Reginald Tatton in memory of those who died in the Great War, is one of the town's most visited places and has a green flag award.
Just a short walk from the town centre and home to the River Chor, there are footpaths to enjoy the woodland, glorious gardens to relax in and a beautiful lake enjoyed by families.
Facilities available include:
While we encourage all the family to play together we ask that parents and carers take particular care to watch toddlers on the Royalist's Retreat Play Area as there are a number of attractions designed with older users in mind. In this area dogs must be on a lead at all times and kept on the main path, away from the play space.
At the heart of the park is Astley Hall, a Grade I listed historic house.
This attractive park is steeped in history and combines open parkland and ancient boundary woodland. Visitors of all ages will discover an attractive setting for a wide range of leisure activities. The park also stages summer fun days and family events. You can view these on our What's on page.
