Belle Vue Park adjoins Sparrows Nest Park where there are sport, play, refreshment and toilet facilities. Although only a single road separates the parks, please be aware that access is via steep steps.
About Belle Vue Park:
Visitors arriving from the direction of the High Street can gain access to Belle Vue Park through the sunken memorial rose garden and then on to several tree-lined avenues beyond. Those arriving from the direction of Gunton Cliffs will find entrances on the main road and also via the historic bridge over the ravine.
Alternatively, visitors can take the steps from Sparrows Nest Park past the steep sided banks of spring wildflowers and emerge at the top of the gardens, high above the North Denes and adjacent to the war memorial. The memorial, which was erected and is maintained by the war graves commission, commemorates members of the Royal Naval Patrol Service who died between 1939 and 1945, having ‘no grave but the sea.’
Seating is plentiful throughout the gardens, making this is the perfect spot to sit and relax under mature trees and enjoy the birds and wildlife that make this garden their home.
