Avenham and Miller Parks are adjoining Parks that lie in the picturesque Avenham valley close to Preston city centre. Even though the Parks are close to Preston’s main shopping and businesses area, their tranquil setting on the banks of the River Ribble offers a pleasant retreat from the hustle and bustle of city life.
Avenham and Miller Parks are located in the heart of the city centre, less than 5 minutes walk from the railway station and only 10 minutes from the bus station.
Sat Nav postcode is PR1 8JP - this brings you to the corner of South Meadow Lane and Riverside.
Cyclists are well catered for as national cycle route 6 and route 55 pass through the Park creating links from Preston to Bamber Bridge, Chorley, Blackburn and up to Lancaster, Morecambe and the Lake District.
The Ribble Way national trail also passes along the river through Avenham and Miller Parks.
