Parking at Pennington Hall Park 

Visitors - Please use the car park located off Pennington Avenue.

Pennington Hall ParkA pretty community park with play areas, tennis courts, bowling greens and a band stand. Events take place in the park throughout the year, including a popular Proms event in September.

The park was presented to Leigh Corporation by local brewers Messer’s George Shaw and Company Limited in 1920 at a floral opening on Saturday 28th August 1920. The hall was used as a museum and art gallery and the grounds were adapted from the gardens of the hall and the work was carried out under an unemployment relief scheme.

The earliest records of a hall on the site are from 1200s when it was owned by the Pennington family; the last hall was demolished in 1963 when it was found to have dry rot.

Community Spaces CIC are an important partner within the park. Their role is to make sure that the park provides for the needs of the local community.

They provide hot drinks and food within Caffeina Cafe, the thriving community cafe, as well as run the wellbeing garden Grow Your Mind.

They are also improving the Pavilion enabling it to become a community meeting place.
