Hope Park The Gardens

Hope Park The Gardens

Monday - Sunday

Free to use all day

The gardens at Hope Park are one of the main attractions for visitors to Keswick with many people telling us it’s the first place they look forward to visiting when they arrive.

With a fabulous display of trees and shrubs, including the famous ‘wedding cake tree’ (Cornus Controversa) with its distinctive tiers, and a large variety of flowers and plants, the gardens are a delight all year round.

The gardens are well maintained by Keswick Town Council and new flowers are planted every year by a dedicated team of gardeners. From the beautiful tulips and daffodils in Spring to the spectacular colours of wildflowers in summer, the gardens are a haven for wildlife and insects.

There are lots of benches dotted throughout the gardens where you can find a quiet spot to relax and admire the beautiful flowers or why not enjoy an ice cream and watch families having fun playing crazy golf, or you could make a day of it and enjoy a picnic. See if you can spot our hand-carved squirrel sculpture who resides in the park.

We are very excited to add a brand new sculpture of Max, local canine ambassador of Keswick, to our park.!

Hundreds of thousands of people from all around the world enjoy watching the local adventures of Max, Paddy, and Harry, three fun-loving Springer Spaniels, on their daily walks in and around Keswick, all filmed live by their owner Kerry. Local artist Kirsty Armstrong has created the life size sculpture of Max and he is currently being converted into bronze. Watch this space for details of the grand unveiling, we’ve heard a rumour that royalty may be involved!
