Greenhead Park opened in September 1884 and is now over 130 years old. Throughout this time it has proved to be popular with the people of Huddersfield. Only half a mile from Huddersfield town centre, the park is a world away from the hustle and bustle of the shops, offices and stresses and strains of urban life. It is the perfect place to unwind, relax and enjoy the wonderful environment and landscape of this beautiful park. It’s a fantastic place to spend time with friends, enjoy the changing of the seasons, play on the swings, or grab a cuppa in one of the two cafés.
