Cuerden Valley Park was set up in 1986 by the Commission for New Towns and handed over to Cuerden Valley Park Trust in 1992 to manage for the benefit of all. The park is open seven days a week, 365 days a year and welcomes everyone. It has approximately 650 acres of parkland, woodland, meadows, a lake, ponds and gardens and is located in Lancashire, close to Preston, Leyland and Chorley.

The visitor centre is located on Berkeley Drive, Bamber Bridge. It is a shared facility for Cuerden Valley Park Trust and the Wildlife Trust for Lancashire, Manchester and North Merseyside. At the visitor centre, there is information about the park and forthcoming events, an interactive 3D map and trail leaflets. A board for 'recent wildlife sightings on the park' is maintained in the foyer.

Visitors can take advantage of ten miles of footpaths on the park. There is a bridleway, a cycleway (part of Lancashire County Council's Route 55) and a lake. This walk passes through the heart of the park before exploring some of the lesser-known footpaths in the surrounding area.

This walk was originated by Chris Baines but Walkingworld are very grateful to Jim for keeping it up to date now, October 2019.

2019 - parking is now 4 pounds a day. In June 2018 a new Visitor Centre was opened and as it is unlikely that it will be on the same site as the old one, some of the early walk directions might not be quite right. Jim Grindle.
