About

CORONAVIRUS

Please ensure that when visiting Calderstones Park that you adhere to the Government guidelines around social distancing. Please - especially during these times where more visitors are attending outdoor spaces such as these - do not leave litter in the park. If bins are full, please take your litter home with you. 

Calderstones Park is not just another pretty looking park. It's home to ancient megaliths that are said to be older than Stonehenge, this is in fact what the park is named after.

And that's not all, within Calderstones Park visiors will also find the extraordinary Allerton Oak, also known as the Law Oak. It is claimed that 1000 years ago the Hundred Court sat under its spreading branches - the trunk is now hollow and its branches supported by stakes.

Calderstones incorporates the Harthill Botanical Gardens, founded in 1802. Almost 4000 species of plants are on show, brought from all over the world by merchants and other travellers.

The park also features a lake, where youngsters can feed the geese and ducks rice balls! There's also Mansion House, which features a café and a child-friendly play area.

Parking is available at Calderstones Road and Yew Tree entrances.
