Attraction Information

Horden Welfare Park is the village's most popular attraction for the simple pleasures of childhood but also hosts a number of rather more exciting activities throughout the year particularly during the summer holidays. Having been awarded the Green Flag Award and also the Green Heritage Site Award it's also lovely even when there's nothing happening here, with nice open spaces for traditional family games and light exploration.

For the kids the park features toddler and junior sets of play areas; football, rugby and cricket fields; bowling greens; bandstand; statue; multi sports pitch and the charming Vintage Tearoom. Some of the sports facilities need to be booked ahead if you wish to use them but some are open generally for public access especially during the school holidays in summer.

Also housed within the park is the elusive Horden Heritage Centre, situated in the upper rooms of the Vintage Tearoom. The Heritage Centre houses memorabilia which looks back over 100 years of Horden history, including mining memorabilia, old photographs of Horden and the villagers, Horden heritage, local memories. Please note their very limited opening times and phone ahead if you'd like to try and arrange another time for your family to visit.
