The vision

The vision for Farnley Country Park is to create a vast, green space in Huddersfield for people to visit, learn, work and play.

We spent 18 months researching the need for such a facility. We spoke with more than 400 organisations ranging from schools and charities to leisure and rural businesses.

The next step was to discover whether or not local people and those from further afield shared our vision.

The answer was a resounding yes!
