Long Description:
The park's official name is Queen's Park but it is also known as Longton Park. The land was given by the Duke of Sutherland, and work began in 1887. The total cost was estimated to be £6000, which was mostly met by voluntary subscription. The park was officially opened on July 25th 1888 by George Granville William Sutherland Levison-Gower, the third Duke of Sutherland.

Queen's Park is Grade: II* listed, and is famous for its trees, horticulture and lakes. It has a very individual character and is one of the city's heritage parks. (visit link)

The park was designed and its laying-out supervised by John H Garrett, the Duke of Sutherland's land agent. Some 15,000 trees and shrubs were donated by the Duke of Sutherland and other patrons, and the lakes stocked with coarse fish - fishing was allowed from 1890, and there were boats for hire.

The park has four entrances, two on Trentham Road, one on Queens Park Avenue and one on Cocknage Road. The coordinates given are for the main entrance to the park located on the corner of Trentham Road and Queens Park Avenue.

It is open from 8:00am until dusk.
