Pearson Park

Pearson Park


Pearson park lies about 1 mile northwest of the city centre and was the first public park to be opened in Hull. The land for the park was provided in 1860 by Zachariah Charles Pearson (1821-91) to mark his first term as mayor of Hull.

The historic park boasts a number of Grade II listed monuments including a statue of Queen Victoria and an impressive cast iron entrance archway located on Pearson Avenue. There is plenty to see and do at Pearson Park where attractions include a serpentine lake, a large play area and a conservatory where you can visit George and Mildred, the resident iguana, as well as a number of tropical fish displays.

The Yorkshire Wildlife Trust Garden at Pearson Park also provides a wide range of habitats including hedgerows, woodland and a meadow as well as a fruit and vegetable patch and a display garden. There is plenty of wildlife to see from blue tits, long tailed tits and robins to butterflies, shield bugs, ladybirds, solitary bees and much more.
