Hanley Park

Hanley Park was opened in 1897, and occupies 63 acres of former waste land between Shelton and Hanley. Development of the park and lake was under the guidance of Thomas H Mawson of Windermere (he also designed Burslem Park). The Pavilion, completed in 1896 was designed by Dan Gibson. The Bandstand was the beneficiary of Mr George Howson a local pottery owner.

The Caldon Canal flows east-west through the middle of the Park.

In recent years several of the buildings have fallen into disrepair. In June 2015, it was announced that a 4.5 million Heritage Lottery Fund grant had been secured, which would allow for the restoration of the pavilion, boathouse, canal bridges, lake and fountains.

Hanley Park Run is held every Saturday at 9 a.m. Entrants may be of all ages shapes and sizes, and may complete the 5 km route at their own pace.
