Stewart Park

Horticultural societies and groups are quickly snapping up stalls at this year’s Stewart Park Open Day on Saturday, May 26.

But managers at the historic Middlesbrough park are keen for other organisations and vocational interest groups to take advantage of a great opportunity.

The annual open day presents a fantastic shop window for them to sell their products and services, and to put on demonstrations.

The event is ideally suited to the likes of food sellers, arts and crafts stalls and local clubs and societies.

The Open Day runs from noon to 5pm on Saturday, May 26. Pitches (6sq ft) are £25 each (free to charities) and available both indoors and outdoors.

Info about the current refurbishment

Stewart Park is currently being transformed by an £8 million Parks for People scheme administered by the Heritage Lottery Fund and Big Lottery Fund and backed by a further £1.5 million of funding from Middlesbrough Council, Healthy Towns and central government play area funding.

The project will see the creation of a new visitor centre, education venue, shop, training workshops and public event spaces, with work due for completion in the Spring.

Lakes, paths and woodland areas are all being improved and many of the estate’s Victorian buildings are being opened up to the public.

To book

For more information or to book a pitch, call Horticultural Advisor Nicky Morgan on 01642 515643, mobile 07901 009550 or email her at Nicola_Morgan@middlesbrough.gov.uk
