Queens Park’s beautiful 45 acres, was dedicated, to the people of Crewe, in 1887, to mark the joint occasion of the Queen's Jubilee and the fiftieth anniversary of the opening of the Grand Junction Railway. The Park, being a gift to the town by the London & North Western Railway Co, was officially opened to the public in 1888.
Designed by F W Webb, and Edward Kemp, at a cost of £10,000
Plus, in recent years a complete refurbishment, following a Heritage Lottery Fund award, to bring Queens Park back up to the parks formal Victorian glory.
Very little changed during the restoration, as the project represented a balance between conservation and innovation, with very little intervention in terms of the original design.
