Come and join the fun at Pickering Park, home to an aviary with worldwide varieties of birds, 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.
