Blackhill and Consett Park is located in the Blackhill conservation area, it was laid out on reclaimed land by the Consett Iron Company and gifted to the community in 1891.
The park adorns the hillside with rolling expanses of cultivated lawns, decorative borders and beds interspersed with woodland areas providing a picturesque link between Consett town centre and Blackhill. Stone piers and wrought iron frame the entrance and a red gravel path sweeps through the park.
Contained within the park is the original Victorian Fountain and a recreated Victorian style bandstand on which colliery brass bands perform through the summer, a tribute to the industrial heritage of the region.
