About the park

Norfolk Heritage Park has a long history, as it is one of the oldest public parks in the country.

From 1999 to 2005 the park was regenerated through a £3.6 million restoration project.

New visitor facilities were constructed, including the Centre in the Park, a multi-purpose community building.  The park landscape was restored to its original Victorian character.
