About our parks

Hartlepool Borough Council manages four formal parks within the town - Ward Jackson, Rossmere, Burn Valley Gardens and Seaton.  They represent a great asset to the town and offer opportunities for rest, recreation and quiet contemplation. They are nevertheless quite different from each other with contrasting usage and pressures. This requires a variety of imaginative solutions and partnership approaches to ensure Hartlepool's parks are managed for both present and future generations.
