Westminster Park is both a suburb to the west of Chester in England, and a large park the area takes its name after. Chester residents do not consider the area as a part of the Lache (an adjacent suburb consisting largely of council housing) although the main route through Westminster Park is Lache Lane. In any case it can sometimes be difficult to tell where one suburb ends and another begins.

Features[edit]

The park contains a nine-hole golf course, municipal and private tennis courts, bowling greens, a cricket pitch, football pitches, a croquet pitch and a children's play area.

There is a shopping complex in Westminster Park. Some of the shops are a Co-op, a delicatessen, hairdresser, beauty salon, a Chinese takeaway, fish and chip shop, a pharmacy, a greengrocer, and a florist.

Westminster Park has a gymnasium nearby which is part of the LA Fitness group.[1] The sports complex is next to the Chester Tennis Club and The Nuffield Hospital on the Wrexham Road.

Just to the south is Chester Business Park, a large, out-of-town office complex for, among others, MBNA and M&S Money.
