Welcome to the website for Houghton Hall Park. Located in the heart of Houghton Regis in Bedfordshire, Houghton Hall Park is a hidden gem - unlocking 42 acres of parkland, woodland and so much more to visitors and the local community while retaining its valuable history.
The park is now jointly managed by Central Bedfordshire Council and Houghton Regis Town Council. Central Bedfordshire Council was awarded a grant of £2.2 million to transform the park as part of the 'Renaissance and Renewal Project' from Heritage and Big Lottery Funds ‘Parks for People’ grant scheme. The completion of this transformation was in October 2017 when the new visitor centre was open to the public. This project has provided an opportunity for the park and its heritage to be protected while delivering multiple community benefits, making Houghton Regis a better place to live, work and visit.
The excellent attributes of the park were further recognised in 2019 when the site received a Green Flag award. This scheme acknowledges well managed parks and green spaces, measuring against benchmarked standards for the management of recreational outdoor spaces in the UK and beyond.
