Back to See & Do


Burn Valley Gardens is a wonderful green corridor which connects the town centre with Family Wood, Summerhill and the wider countryside to the west of the town. The eastern entrance to the park is located at York Road and the western entrances at Catcote Road and Elwick Road. Burn Valley Gardens is within close walking distance to Ward Jackson Park and contains three bowling greens, one in the lower portions of the gardens and two in the upper, The park is home to two play areas, one for young children (5 to 8 year olds) and a second play area space for 8 to 13 year olds. A cycleway also runs through the gardens.During 2011 the western Burn Valley will be developed as part of the Wild Green Spaces Project to create beautiful wetland areas and winding watercourses which will benefit wildlife and provide a fabulous green space for local people and visitors to enjoy.
