Park Road

Details about Park Road

Park Road Hartlepool is a mile long. The lower part, in particular from Stockton Street to York Road, has always been largely a business area, whereas the upper part is mainly residential. There are many substantial detached and semi detached homes, mainly of Victorian and Edwardian build which are fairly expensive properties.

When first developed, it was named Commercial Street, but this was changed in the mid 1880s because when Ward Jackson Park was opened in 1883, it literally became a road to the park from the centre of town.
