Vulcan Park is a 14 acre town centre park situated in the centre of Workington on Vulcan’s Lane. The bulk of the land now known as Vulcan Park was purchased by Workington Corporation in 1908 and after being used as allotment gardens during the First World War it was formally opened as the first public park in Workington on 4 June 1925 by Alderman J McMullen.
Today the park remains a valued amenity and is used by the local community for relaxation and recreation as well as a variety of events and activities throughout the year.
Facilities available in Vulcan Park include:
A bowling green and bower
A playing pitch with goal posts
An outdoor gym for adults
Since taking over the park in 2018, Workington Town Council has worked on a number of improvements, including a joint venture with Cumbria Wildlife Trust to create a wildflora meadow.
