About the venue
The park was originally the grounds of Ravensknowle Hall, now Tolson Museum, and was gifted to Huddersfield Corporation in 1919 as a memorial to the owner's nephews, lost in the First World War.
It's a perfect setting for this stunning historic building as well as Huddersfield’s iconic Cloth Hall Shelter entrance, moved from the town centre in the 1930s.
The park is relatively cosy, being just less than 5 hectares in size, but is very popular with visitors. On opening it had a paddling pool, bowling greens, tennis courts together with areas of ornamental bedding.
There were also two park lodges, where the gardeners lived as well as greenhouses where the bedding plants were grown in the park, together with boundary railings and entrance gates.
There is a landscape plan currently in development by Design and Property Services for the central area of the park. The Culture and Leisure depot will be moved out of the park, allowing for there to be more open space, an improved vista onto the museum and stables, together with a greatly improved entrance feature, and parking facility.
