Barrow Park is a 45-acre public park in Barrow-in-Furness, Cumbria, England. It is located entirely within the Parkside ward, to which the park lends its name, bound by Abbey Road, Park Drive, Greengate Street and Park Avenue. Barrow Park was designed by Thomas Mawson in 1908 and was constructed in stages over the following two decades. Originally sited on the outskirts of Barrow, the park is now more or less central due to rapid growth of the town northwards during the early 20th century. It is designated by Historic England as Grade II on the Register of Historic Parks and Gardens.Make Barrow Park part of your personalized Barrow-in-Furness itinerary using our Barrow-in-Furness travel website.
The park contains a large boating lake, mini railway, skate park, various playgrounds and The Park Leisure Centre. The Barrow Parkrun takes place within the park every Saturday. Large sections of Barrow Park were redeveloped in 2005 to include a new pavilion, café, bandstand and display glasshouse. The park has since gained Green Flag status.

It also hosts the full of noise festival every year which means coming across the most unusual sounds you’ll hear in a park and weird transformations to the mini pitch and put course.
Barrow Park is a credit to the town. It is a beautiful tranquil open space which is well maintained. Activities which can be found in the park are.... Crown Green Bowling, Putting Greens, Boating Lake, Leisure Centre, Artificial Football Pitch, Display Glass House, Concrete Skate Area, Pavilion Cafe and a Bandstand....
