George Bancroft Park, Blackpool
George Bancroft Park is a municipal park and garden created in the town of Blackpool (in Lancashire, England) in 2006. The park is named after George Bancroft who a former leader of Blackpool Town Council who died in 2001.
The development is part of Blackpool's "Central Gateway", a project which has gradually adapted derelict railway land, which was formerly the approach to Blackpool Central railway station, into an access road and associated facilities.
As well as the traditional gardens and children's play area, George Bancroft Park has an enclosed basketball and five-a-side football court. A more unusual aspect of the park is the presence of two highly sculptural 20-metre climbing towers and a bouldering wall.
