Queen's Park, River Croal and Dobson Bridge
Dobson Bridge was erected in 1878 to link the original park with a later extension to the south east, over the River Croal. The section over the river has ornamental stone piers with ornate cast iron plaques bearing the Bolton Crest. It has a parapet of latticed ironwork and is carried over the lodges adjacent to the river on cast iron columns with capitals, supporting ornamental spandrels.
Queen's Park, Bolton
Queen’s Park is to the west of Bolton town centre, between Chorley New Road and Spa Road. Prior to being made into a park, the site was pasture land known as Spa Fields.

When it was first opened. in 1866, the park was called Bolton Park; it was renamed as Queen’s Park in 1897 in recognition of Queen Victoria’s Diamond Jubilee. The park has recently been refurbished with support from the Heritage Lottery Fund.
