Queen's Park, Longton :: Shared Description

A public park of 1887 with lakes, winding tree-lined carriage drives and paths, shrubberies, and much original furniture including a bandstand.
It was the first public pleasure ground in the Potteries. For this and the following other reasons it is listed as Grade II*: the park is a good example of a later Victorian municipal park in an industrial town; its design is essentially unchanged from its original layout of the 1880s; the park was designed and laid out by the Duke of Sutherland’s Land Agent John H Garrett; it retains various C19 park structures, many locally manufactured; and good mature trees survive, with tree-lined paths and drives.
