Mill Bank Park

A piece of land on Mill Bank was let for a nominal fee by the Marquis of Zetland and the park was made by 80 volunteers from the Loftus West Road Social Centre, one of the schemes for relieving the monotony of the unemployed, transforming 3 acres of wooded land into a beauty spot, the park and children’s recreation ground is hoped to have swings, a sand pit and other attractions.

Images are from our cuttings file (in the main from the Evening Gazette), thanks to Maurice Dower for the update.

  • I remember this park as an adventure from my very early years in the late 40’s. The entrance was from a gateway halfway down Mill Bank and from a path down from St Hildas Terrace. It did have the swings etc but sadly it became neglected.
