Big plans for great experiences

Ropner Park

ropner park

Fully restored to its Victorian splendour, Ropner Park is a real delight at any time of year. You can stroll by the lakeside or along tree-lined avenues and admire the beautiful floral displays.  There’s a fabulous play area, tennis courts, bowls club and large grassed areas for games and picnics.

The splendid pavilion houses a café and toilets.  The café is run by the Friends of Ropner Park, who also organise a programme of concerts on the bandstand and run other events in the park.  The Friends have made a big contribution to the restoration and on-going success of the park, and they welcome new members. For more information about the Friends of Ropner Park and information about events visit their website:



Main entrance on Hartburn Lane (A1027) with other entrances on Hartburn Avenue, Marlborough Road and Balmoral Terrace. For cyclists and walkers, the park is a very short distance from the Castle Eden Walkway. Car parking on Hartburn Lane and Marlborough Road.
