General description

Worden Park is located at the southern edge of the town of Leyland and at the southern boundary of the borough of South Ribble, approximately seven miles south of Preston, Lancashire. The park was first opened to the public in 1951 as part of the Festival of Britain celebrations and is now is listed Grade II by English Heritage on its Register of Parks and Gardens of Special Historic Interest.

Model Railway - The Leyland Society of Model engineers have been operating at Worden for almost as long as the park has been open to the public. They provide free rides to the public on Tuesdays, Sundays and bank holidays (dependent on the weather) around the park's wildflower meadows on a newly extended route which is now almost 1km long.

Formal Gardens - Originally designed by the landscape architect William Andrews Nesfield, the formal gardens at Worden provide a quiet space for visitors to sit and enjoy the peaceful surroundings, surrounded by colourful bedding displays.
