Is this the most beautiful Public Park in any British town? We certainly think so. Peasholm Park is an absolute gem! A central island with Japanese Pagoda ornately sitting on top, is surrounded by a lake. A waterfall cascades from the top of the island. Here you can circumnavigate the island on the Dragon or Swan themed pedalos.
And make sure you watch the world famous 'Naval Warfare' every Monday and Thursday in the season. This is one of the world's oldest shows and features model ships manned by people inside reinacting a famous wartime battle, complete with firing planes, explosions and sinking ships!
And don't miss Peasholm Park's most beautiful secret: Peasholm Glen. A stream flows down numerous little waterfalls into lush pools surrounded by some of the biggest variety of trees and foliage found anywhere in Britain with examples from all over the world.
The narrow valley creates shelter for these exotic species and the Japanese themed furniture, weeping willow trees, nature trails, picnic benches and ornaments create a true paradise within the town boundary.
