WHAT TO SEE IN DARWEN
Whitehall Park was the first public park to be created in Darwen. The first stage of the Park was opened in 1879 and then added to as further land was purchased. The last part to be opened was the stretch from the Main Entrance to the track separating the two parts of the Park. The natural features of the area contributed to the landscaping of the Park with good use being made of the natural streams draining from the moors.
In earlier times the Park was full of colourful flower beds, planted out each season. In recent times the Park has been looked after by the Whitehall Park Supporters Group who have been instrumental in developing the community garden and their latest venture, the community orchard.
