Hope Park, Keswick.

Hope Park is found just off the Lake Road as you walk towards The Theatre By The Lake and Derwentwater and is overlooked by The Heads.

Once used as a field for grazing the carriage horses that took visitors from the railway station to the local hotels, Hope Park was opened as a golf course in 1927 after it was donated by Sir Percy Hope after he had developed it as a minature golf course. After Sir Percy and Lady Hope had passed away the park was given over to the care of Keswick Town Council in 1974.

Hope Park is home to a minature golf course, an obstacle golf course and putting course. In addition there is a nature trail and woodland walk.
