WHAT A BEAUTIFUL DAY FOR THE CORONATION PARK AND RECREATION GROUND IN OUR 1950s TOWN!

The new park, named in honour of The Queen, was officially unveiled today by Mrs Sue Snowdon, Her Majesty's Lord-Lieutenant of County Durham, and representatives of Durham Amateur Football Trust.  It includes a 1950s-style playground, miniature golf course, sandpit, giant draughts board and football area.

Coronation Park is part of the Remaking Beamish project, which includes The 1950s Town, 1950s Farm, Georgian expansion and transport developments.  The Remaking Beamish project was awarded a £10.9million grant by the National Lottery Heritage Fund in 2016.
