Pickering Park

Come and join the fun at Pickering Park, home to a fishing lake, playgrounds and a paddling pool (open during the summer). 

Pickering Park was founded by Christopher Pickering and officially opened on 13 July 1911. Christopher made his fortune as a merchant and ship owner, particularly in the Hull fish trade.

Magnificent iron gates mark the entrance to the park. Fortunately, they were considered too important to use as scrap during the war effort. On the gates, you can see a shield with a lion, the same as on the Pickering family crest.

Pickering Park also has beautiful ornamental gardens and a wildlife pond.

Things to do at Pickering Park

From Friday 12 July to 21 Sunday July we are teaming up with Keep Britain Tidy to promote the national Love Parks Week campaign where we want the public to get out in their community parks and green spaces and enjoy everything which is going on in parks.

Throughout Love Parks Week we have loads of events happening across our parks. You can find all the activities at Pickering park below;
