Looking across the "Big Lodge"

Yarrow Valley Park is a country park in Lancashire, England. It follows the River Yarrow for about 6 miles. It contains much woodland and includes nature reserves, best known being Birkacre and Duxbury Woods. Parts of the park are reclaimed collieries and other old industrial sites.

A visitor's centre is on site, with regular conservation events. Angling is permitted on the two lodges.

The park provides recreation for the nearby town of Chorley and its surrounding villages.
