Some people love to shop while others long for the great outdoors – at Dalton Park you can have it all! Once you’ve explored the bright and airy shopping malls of Dalton Park you can also discover 55 acres of landscaped Parkland that are opposite the shopping centre.
In 2003 over 600,000 cubic metres of colliery spoil was shifted in order to create space for the construction of the buildings and car park of the retail outlet. All of the material excavated on site was re-used to create the hills and valleys of the Parkland. Re-cycled organic waste was used to enrich the colliery shale so that colonies of woodland, wetland and wildflower meadows could be established.
Today you can find 3 signposted walks within the Parkland with various wildlife habitats.
