Attraction Information

Explore historic England at Castle Park House and Gardens in Frodsham. Kids will love venturing around this attractive historic park. There are 9 hectares of Green Flag-awarded grounds in total! You can begin your outdoor adventure in a number of different places as there are a mixture of formal gardens, wide-open lawns, and intriguing wooded areas.

There are also recreational leisure facilities, like a bowling green and tennis courts. There are so many fun family activities to pick from whether that's picnicking, embarking on new trails or just lazing about with some munchkin books in the sunshine.

There are centuries of history to uncover around every corner at Castle Park and below, you'll find our guide to where you should explore first... 
Things to do 
Alright, they were just joking about the lazing about, you know that's not going to happen again until there are at least 12, but there are 2 big sandy areas to enjoy until then with unusual climbing frames and a vast grassy area between the play area and the car park. Don't forget your buckets and spades or you're going to get nagged in wee squeaky voices.

The Castle Park Arts Centre in the old Castle Park house is reached via Fountains Lane and has 3 galleries great for exploring if you need to escape extremes of the weather of one kind or another, exhibitions which change regularly, so repeat visits can be interesting too!

The walk through the park up Frodsham Hill offers a view out over the Mersey Estuary towards Liverpool city centre, so if the little legs are still full of it there's a lovely way to finish them off right here.

Hunt for clues within the beautiful grounds and uncover the story of Matilda and her friends... This story sculpture trail, Matilda The Bee, is perfect for small kids. All you have to do is explore the outdoors and piece together the short story to find out what happens next!

And as for trail number two, The Castle Park Tree Trail is perfect for all ages! You'll discover 19 trees including three new trees planted in dedication to the late Queen Elizabeth II, the new king Charles III and to honour Marie Birkenhead, a former Councillor of Vale Royal Borough and Honorary Alderman who championed Frodsham and its residents.

Exploration doesn't have to be high energy and wild either, think of a trip to Castle Park as a mindful exercise. You can even take part in well-being activities like yoga, tai chi, and Nordic walking! And if you have got some energy bubbling away, why not take a trip to the tennis courts? 
Food & Drink
Bring your own food for a scenic picnic! If you want to treat your family to some tea or cake head over to the Pavilion Cafe in the park. You'll also find the toilet facilities here.
