Stewart Park

Stewart Park covers about 120 acres and consists both of mature woodland and arboretum on the southern side, with open parkland on the northern side. Two sets of lakes provide habitat for our water fowl.

A big favourite with all the family is the extensive pets corner with many types of domesticated animals, fallow deer, highland cattle, llamas and goats.

It is most famous as the birthplace of Captain Cook. The site of his cottage is marked by a granite vase in the nearby Captain Cook Birthplace Museum. Look out for the new Captain Cook Play area!

It also hosts a number of large events, including the Cleveland Show.

The park is available free of charge to charitable organisations for fund raising events such as sponsored walks and fun runs.
