Park Development

Ryelands Park

Ryelands Park

Lancaster City Council, Lancashire County Council, and the Friends of Ryelands Park are working together to help improve the park.

The partners have put together a plan for the future of Ryelands Park based on the views of local residents. The final plan enables us to secure funding to carry out improvements to the park.

Lots of ideas have been put forward and it is hoped that in the future the park will offer more for a wider variety of people and age groups. Just some of the elements of the plan include a BMX track, adult exercise area, community garden and cafe.

2012: The accessible play area was delivered.

2013: Work started on the development of the adult health trail. See report here, work continues to secure funding.

2014: Established wild flower garden and orchard.


Ryelands Park is located on the main A6 road just to the north of the city across the river Lune.

The park was given to the residents of Lancaster by Lord Ashton, a local industrialist, whose family home was Ryelands House.
