Stewart Park covers approximately 120 acres and consists both of mature woodland and arboretum on the southern side, and open parkland on the northern side. Two sets of lakes provide a habitat for our water fowl.
There's also a pets corner with many types of domesticated animals, fallow deer, llamas and goats.
The park also features a new children's play area, trim trail and outdoor table tennis.
Nature, heritage, orienteering and tree trails are popular with school visits.
The Captain Cook Birthplace Museum stands in Stewart Park, close to the site of the cottage where Captain James Cook was born. All traces of the building have now disappeared, but the spot is marked by a granite vase.
The park hosts larger events such as the Cleveland Show every year in July (weather permitting).
Central Lodge was built in the 1800s by Henry Bolckow, Middlesbrough's first MP and mayor, on his estate, which later became Stewart Park. It was made up of many rooms including a coach house and stables, a laundry and drying room, a dairy and lodgings for the estate workers. Askham Bryan College has completely refurbished the building to provide land-based education, such as equine and animal husbandry. Educations packs, information booklets, and blog is available to view on the abcstewartpark website.
