Bedale Park and Green Spaces

Bedale Parks

Bedale Town Council maintains a number of green spaces for the enjoyment of visitors to and residents of Bedale. There are also a number of walks in and around the town to explore.

Bedale Park

Bedale Park was once part of the parkland belonging to Bedale Hall. In it can be found many beautiful mature trees and a handsome banstand standing beside the magnificent facade of Bedale Hall. The Bandstand, donated by a generous resident who was keen to encourage local musical talent, was installed in 2015. It is here that throughout the Summer months local bands put on public concerts.

There is also a delightful childrens play area, a skate park, and a set of exercise equipment for those wishing to keep fit. A number of Personal Trainers and Fitness Coaches also run exercise classes in the park. If you are a Personal Trainer and would like to run classes in the park more information is available here.

If you would prefer to simply walk around the Park look out for the ice-house belonging to Bedale Hall which can be seen amongst the trees at the edge of the park (The ice house is on private land and is not accessible to the public).

The Ice House in Bedale Park

Many people follow the footpath around the edge of the park enjoying the fine views of Bedale Hall and St Gregory's Church. For those that fancy a slightly longer walk a tree lined path leads from the back of the park along the edge of the nearby golf course for about half a mile.

Throughout the Spring and Summer, Bedale Park is used for many public events. Every Saturday morning from March to October it plays host to the Bedale Car Boot Sales and at the start of November it hosts the Bedale Bonfire and Fireworks event.

If you would like to use the Park to stage an public event or for private or commercial use please contact the Clerk to the Council.
