Add Jean Stansfield Memorial Park (Vicarage Park) to your Itinerary

Jean Stansfield Park with benches and yellow flowers

Just a hop skip and a jump from Poulton's market square lies just under 3 hectares of peace and quiet. Not to forget though the children's playground, the multi use games area and bowling green, or just to sit and enjoy the urban wildlife.

The Jean Stansfield Park, also known as Vicarage Park, began its life back in 1926 in memory of Jean, the daughter of Mr and Mrs S F Stansfield, who died tragically at the age of 10 years old.

Jean was a pupil at Westbourne House and her parents donated two acres of land to the people of Poulton to create a park and recreational ground for local children.

In 1938 the town's first public bowling green and pavilion were opened in the park. The pavilion was surrounded by shrubs, donated by 'Windsors Wollies', with a green keeper's table, a series of bowls shelves and lockers inside.

Today, the park certainly lives up to the Stansfields' original hopes and intentions as it hosts a children's play area, a crown green bowling green and an ornamental wetland area.
