Things to Do

Flora

In spring the Hopkins garden includes daffodils, perennial shrubs and even wild mushrooms. It’s a great place to come for a sit down and a break if you’re in the park or close by.

If you look closely for the yellow flower bed in season, this is the exact point of the original Morley House, home to the Scatcherd family from the 17th century onwards.

Walking

The paved walking paths around the gardens are a great circuit to power walk or go for a leisurely stroll. A full circular lap with clock 0.3 of a kilometre; you can add more distance by using the connecting paths between the centre point and edges of the garden.

Unwind and Relax

On one of the many benches placed around the edge of the garden. Enjoy the beautiful scenery and take some time for yourself.

History

Scatcherd Park was owned by the Scatcherd family; the park originated following the declaration from the family that all of Morley could enjoy this green space. In recent times Morley Leisure Centre was built on the edge of the park land.

Hopkins Garden was built within Scatcherd Park. It was a gift from Morley’s first Town Clerk – Mr. R. Borrough Hopkins – built between 1936-39. This development was made in the spirit of giving back to the people of Morley.

Amenities
