Bold Venture Park

This was the second public park to be created in Darwen and is situated on the site of former quarries, the evidence of which can be seen in the upper reaches of the main Park.  There is a sculpture trail which you can follow through this park, photos of which can be found in the Green Spaces section of this website.  Higher Bold Venture Park continues on the opposite side of Manor Road and leads directly out onto the moors.  

There is a map which can be found at the main entrance and at other points in the park revealing the intricate pattern of linked paths which you can follow.For those with mobility issues you should note that there are some steep paths and a number of areas which cannot be passed without using steps.  However, it is still possible to visit most parts of the Park whilst avoiding the steps.  This walk starts at the main entrance and follows the path up the North side of the park before returning down the centre of the park to the start point.
