About the garden

If you like your green space to come with a well-stocked cafe, kid’s adventure playground and bundles of community spirit then Ford Park is the place for you.

Located in the urban heart of Ulverston, this eight-acre park is popular among locals and visitors alike. Ford Park’s well-trodden paths snake past open fields, a pretty wildflower meadow and woodland copse before depositing walkers at a foliage-packed plant nursery, where the urge to buy everything is strong.

At the centre of the park is Ford House, an atmospheric Grade II listed building. This and the grounds are run by Ford Park Community Group, whose sharing is caring mantra extends to the garden, where field to fork learning and eating is encouraged. This sustainable approach to food production is continued in The Coach House, which serves freshly prepared dishes using ingredients picked just meters away in the Victorian walled kitchen garden.

Lovely park just out of the town centre, with brand new children's play area. Parking available for donation, wooded trails and cafe/restaurant on site.
