East Park, Hull
At 130 acres of parkland, East Park is Hull’s largest park and was opened in 1887 to celebrate Queen Victoria’s Golden Jubilee. There is a little something for everyone at the park. Whether you just want a stroll around the parkland, or to visit the menagerie of animals at the Animal Educational Centre or scenic place for a coffee in the cafè.
In 1913 Thomas Ferens gifted the land to build a 16 acre boating lake. It was constructed by unemployed locals after the 1st World War and is now a haven to wildlife, boaters and anglers alike. During the summer months, a Splash boat is operated on the lake. This is one of only three in England and has been on the lake since 1929.
