More about the park

Careful planning of the 14 Hectares at Wellholme Park allows recreation and conservation to sit comfortably side-by-side. Areas of grassland have been left to develop into a more natural environment and positive woodland management is carried out to encourage and sustain wildlife. This helps to increase diversity, benefiting birds, such as Tree Creepers and Herons and plants, such as bluebells and wild garlic.

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 cafe offers a place to relax in and chat with family and friends over a drink and snack.

Queen Elizabeth II Field's in Trust - protected playing fields

Wellholme Park was awarded the QEII - Fields In Trust Challenge status in 2012. The Queen Elizabeth II Fields Challenge aims to protect 2012 playing fields by the end of 2012 as a celebration of the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee. Calderdale Council have signed up to the Challenge, preserving Wellholme Park for future generations to enjoy.

Thornhill Beck Picnic Area

Wellholme Park, with help from the 3 B's community group, was awarded £10,000 from SITA UK to improve the picnic area near Thornhill Beck Lane. This has re-established an accessible, formal picnic space for anyone to enjoy. A new sign, fencing, bins, car park surfacing and picnic benches including facilities which are accessible for wheelchair users have been installed.
