Situated close to Brighouse town centre, the park is easy to reach and has free car parking for visitors. Why not take a stroll around the park, sit and relax in the surroundings, enjoy a picnic, or explore the natural woodlands and follow the path of Clifton Beck that runs through the heart of Wellholme? The newly opened cafe offers a place to relax and chat with family and friends over a drink and snack. If you prefer something more energetic, then perhaps enjoy a game of tennis on one of the four courts, or a game of bowls on one of the two crown greens or the flat bowling green. An exciting playground with scramble net, climbing frame, swings and a roundabout gives hours of enjoyment to our younger visitors. A demanding skateboard park is a test for those who like a spot of boarding and for those who prefer something less strenuous then there is a putting green and crazy golf.
