Glen and Crescent Gardens

Glen and Crescent Gardens is a unique and varied park, of around 14 hectares, situated in a stunning location on the North Yorkshire coast at Filey, in the Borough of Scarborough. The park comprises a great variety of landscapes and benefits from spectacular coastal views. It includes formal gardens with colourful seasonal bedding displays, shrub beds and rockeries, a bandstand and numerous pleasant seating and picnic areas. There are also areas for more active recreation such as children's play area and open amenity grass for informal ball games as well as a miniature golf course. Other facilities on offer include two cafes, a boating pool, pitch and putt and a go-cart track. Those seeking peace and quiet or wishing to enjoy the local flora and fauna are also well catered for with a wooded valley and further areas of mature woodland.

Glen and Crescent Gardens benefits enormously from the support of a strong and active Friends group, and enjoys excellent links with a great many local community organisations. The Friends of Filey Parks hold regular meetings and workdays to assist the park maintenance team as well as to carry out specific projects such as tree, shrub and bulb planting, bird box making and litter picking. There is also a programme of events held in the park throughout the year, especially in the summer season.

The park is well loved by residents of Filey and the surrounding area as well as many thousands of visitors every year.
