Alkincoates Park

Alkincoates Park was originally managed by Pendle Borough Council but in January 2020 the rights to the park were transferred to Colne Town Council. The Town Council will be working to deliver a much-improved appearance in partnership with The Phillip Wright Crown Green Bowling Academy, Friends of Alkincoates Park and Unique Clean, who successfully tendered to deliver the Town Council’s demanding operational requirements for the next three years.

Colne Town Council wants the people of Colne to enjoy their wonderful park and to see it improve and become better used over the next few years. It will take a few months to start to deliver improvement and any feedback on the Park will always be appreciated. The main attractions of the park are the four tennis courts, the bowling greens, the bandstand, the children’s play area, the picnic areas, and the Pavilion Café. Parts of Alkincoates has already had some improvements to make it become better used with CCTV added to the Pavilion Cafe/Bowling Greens, a refurbished playground and a brand new outdoor gym.
