All year round
Laid out by Edward Milner during the 1860s, Avenham Park and the adjacent Miller Park are his best-surviving bequests to the city. A traditional picturesque Victorian park, Avenham is created from a natural amphitheatre overlooking the River Ribble and is a popular facility for outdoor pursuits.
In addition to its famous Japanese Rock Garden, the park also includes the Avenham Colonnade, the splendid riverside Ribble Walk, the Belvedere and the majestic Derby Walk. A number of outdoor events are held here throughout the year, including traditional egg rolling on Easter Monday, the annual Preston Mela (festival of South Asian culture) and the Party in the Park.
