A history of high jinks
Hello everyone, and welcome to Wicksteed Park! I’m Charles Wicksteed, the fellow who created this park back in 1913. I wanted it to be a place where children and adults alike could get out and have a bit of fun, whether they fancied zooming down a waterchute, or taking a gentle stroll.
A century later, I reckon we’re still Britain’s best day out. There’s lots more to discover about our story.
Wicksteed Charitable Trust
The Wicksteed Charitable Trust, which recently celebrated its centenary, has kept alive Charles Wicksteed’s dream of providing healthy play for children and families.
The Trust strives to bring the history of the park alive to all visitors and reflect its rich heritage but it is also looking forward to ensure a vision for the future that is both innovative and ambitious.
