Memories of chidhood visits....still a great place to wander, especially when the sun is out! Also a great place to sit with a picnic and watch a show.

“Da Da Music on a Sunny Day”
Reviewed October 14, 2013

I've been coming to Peasholm Park for more years than I can remember and have loved it ever since the first visit. In those days Scarborough used to hold an 'Its a Knock Out' night based on the TV show (happily no Stuart Hall) and it was a scream. We used to come down from Newcastle in our old Ford Escort to stay in a local B&B and always made time for a walk around the park regardless the weather. However, my fondest memory is just us sitting on a sunny afternoon with a cup of coffee listening to the organ music being played from the floating island. Da Da music as I called it. A simple pleasure and a throwback to times gone past, but that's the charm of this wonderful park as there's something here for both young and old. So many happy memories of your kids growing up and playing happily in this park, and it's brilliant seeing the amount of work that's going on by the 'Friends of Peasholm Park' as they've done so much to help keep the park maintained and alive with their various events etc.

“Highly recommend!”
Reviewed October 12, 2013 via mobile

First time at Peasholm Park. I loved it, so romantic! Lots to do! We went on a rowing boat trip and it was so peaceful and like something out of a film! (The notebook) lol also the toilets were typical public toilets not perfect

“Sea battle”
Reviewed October 11, 2013

I happened to be there when there was a re-enactment of some second world war sea battle complete with quite large scale models of battleships and sounds of gunfire and an excellent commentary. Lots of ducks were paddling about, keeping out of the way! Lovely sunny day and near a bus stop.
There was a small charge to pay but the park itself had no admission fee.
