Preston has many parks worth of visit. The largest ones are Avenham Park and Miller park located south of the city centre, and Moor Park, situated north. Parking the car is not a problem. The parks are only 15 minutes walking distance from the central train station. Preston is along the main train (and car) west route that crosses England from south to north. Avenham Park: with a blackcloth provided by the river Ribble, this park ranks amongst the finest examples of traditional Victorian parkland in the North West of England. The park is created from a natural amphiteatre, has a Japanese rock garden and a variety of plants. There are a lot of pathways to jog around and that connect this park to the Miller park. The nicest one goes around the natural amphiteatre and along the river. Miller park: located on the riverside, adjacent to Avenham park, has the best floral displays to be found in the Borough. At the centre there is a nice fountain with four figures emblematic of Earth, Air, Fire and Water. Moor Park is the Preston's largest open space with a lot of recreational facilities and miles of flat pathways where you can jog. There is also an historic astronomical observatory that is open to the public some evenings.
