Bentley Park – Doncaster MBC

Bentley Park was first opened in 1923 having been financed through the Bentleys Miners Welfare fund, which reflected the rich mining heritage of the area. Until the late 90’s the park was open and managed as a community resource, but an increase in vandalism and anti-social behaviour resulted in the loss of investment.

In 2011 Doncaster Council was awarded £2.5m Heritage Lottery funding to re-open the Pavilion and restore the parks horticultural quality. Coles began to supply the shrubs, trees and herbaceous plants in 2014 as part of a successful tender submission.
