Filey Parks and Gardens:
Filey has an abundance of beautiful parks and gardens and has been acknowledged as having the best parks in Britain in 2015 – and that’s official. The main parks and gardens are located in Glen and Crescent Gardens, Northcliffe Gardens, Nuns Walk, Town Hall Gardens, Memorial Gardens and Filey Country Park. Filey Town Council has signed a ‘Memorandum of Understanding’ with Scarborough Borough Council to ensure that any proposed changes to the Country Park are consulted with Filey Town Council.
The Town Council would like to take this opportunity to thank the Borough Council’s Parks Team who work in partnership with community volunteer groups - the ‘Filey in Bloom’ and the ‘Friends of Filey Parks’ who work tirelessly all year round to maintain Filey’s Parks and Gardens to the very best of standards.
