Bold Venture Park, Darwen

Bold Venture Park, Darwen

"Darren" is a former cotton town in the valley of a river of the same name. I came across this park when walking through the sidestreets and was quite taken with this little oasis. The park dates from 1889 and was formed from cloughs and former quarries. It can be used to link the western side of the town to Darwen Moors and the Jubilee Tower. The war memorial is outstanding and dates from 1921.
