Hurst Grange Park is Penwortham's main park. The park has an interesting mix of woodland, open grass areas and wildlife ponds. There are loads of great off-lead opportunities. Make sure you have plenty of treats so you can recover your dog from the many opportunities he/she will find to play with other four legged friends!
Hurst Grange Park has never failed to provide a fun trip out. Our normal route starts out from the car park on Hill Road. Cross the road and go through a gap in the fence through the woods and on to open grassy space. Here your dog can run around to their hearts content. In autumn, the leaves from the trees provide excellent entertainment value!
When you've had enough, head straight on and down to a boggy area (may be a stream in wet weather). Bear left and go over a bridge and through the trees to an open field. In summer, this is left to become a wonderful grassy meadow, but is quite muddy and open at this time of year. After a couple of circuits of the field explore some of the paths leading through the trees and you'll come across some of the park's wildlife ponds.
Wander at your leisure, eventually making your way back to the car park.
