120-acre family park, with animals, regularly hosts events
Stewart Park covers about 120 acres and consists both of mature woodland and arboretum on the southern side, with open parkland on the northern side. Two sets of lakes provide habitat for our water fowl.
A big favourite with all the family is our extensive pets corner with many types of domesticated animals, fallow deer, highland cattle, llamas and goats.
The park also features a new childrens play area, trim trail, outdoor table tennis and mini golf.
Our nature, heritage, orienteering and tree trails are popular with school visits.
Stewart Park houses the Captain Cook Museum, the site of the cottage where Captain James Cook was born. Although all traces of the building have now disappeared, the spot is marked by a granite vase which is close to the centre of the museum.
The park hosts larger events such as the Cleveland Show every year in July and is available free of charge to charitable organisations for fund raising events such as sponsored walks and fun runs.
