Our Park

The newly restored conservatory

A major restoration of Greenhead Park, funded by the Heritage Lottery Fund and Kirklees Council, was completed in 2011 and the new and refurbished facilities are proving to be extremely popular.  Why not come down and take a look! Our Park information page tells you more about what’s available and when.

There are also details of about the park and its facilities on the Kirklees Council website – and you can find out more about plans for management of the park in the annual Greenhead Park Management Plan.

Click on the links for some park views, pictures of changes in the park and information about our Wild About the Park project.  We would welcome more images – but please don’t take photos of children without their parents’ permission.

A plaque on the wall of the Park Lodge commemorates Alderman Thomas Denham who secured the park for the people of Huddersfield

Greenhead Park has a fascinating history too – follow the link for more information, and details of other heritage-related activities and events.

Contact us if you are interested in the history of the park and would like to get involved in planning activities.

The Friends of Greenhead Park have also published a well-illustrated book telling the story of the park from its earliest days to its renovation in 2010.  The book is available, price £5, from both the Park cafes, local bookshops or at our Wednesday drop-in session and Friends’ events.  It’s available by post too – at £6.25 including P&P – from Friends of Greenhead Park, c/o Refreshment Rooms, Greenhead Park, Huddersfield HD1 4HS.
