Welcome to Ford Park

So much more than a park.

Visit, play, learn & explore.

Ford Park is so much more than a just a park. It’s your charity-run park in the heart of Ulverston, and there’s so much to discover. 

As you walk around the park, you’ll see wide, green open spaces, a field here you can exercise your dogs , an all English Arboretum, an orchard with picnic area, and a walled garden full of beautiful, seasonal plants and flowers – many of which are available to buy from our plant nursery.

Families love the new playground, the wide-open green space to run around and play, and the Woodland Animal Trail along the Zig Zag path is perfect for young explorers.

Love events? With family friendly events and activities held throughout the year, there’s always plenty going on in the park and in our community room with terrace, and stunning views of Morecambe Bay.


​As the gateway to the Sir John Barrow Monument, Ford Park is also a truly unique place to host celebrations – you can even get married at Ford Park.
