About

The Centre in the Park is a purpose-built community building located within Norfolk Heritage Park. The centre includes meeting rooms, a cafe serving local produce and a creche.

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 has been regenerated through a £3.6 million restoration project. New visitor facilities have been constructed, including the Centre in the Park, a multi-purpose community building. The park landscape has been restored to its original Victorian character.

Most of the park was gifted to the city from the Duke of Norfolk in 1910, with the Jervis Lum woodland following in 1956.
