Be part of the story of North Lodge Park
North Lodge Park is a special place, full of memories of playing games on the grass, sailing boats, or just quietly enjoying the views of the pier, beach and sea.
Play your part in our story
The story of Cromer’s clifftop park between the sea and the town began when North Lodge Park opened on Saturday 18 May 1929.
As we celebrate its 90th birthday a new chapter begins with the development of a fully accessible contemporary bridge which will link the upper lawn to the rest of the park.
This will include a viewing platform, places to sit, and play elements. There will be new access points for the park, and more play opportunities, seating and planting on the upper lawn.
The Friends of North Lodge Park have raised over half the £210,000 cost of the project from tremendous community support through the café, pledges and donations.
We are seeking grant contributions to make up the balance, but need extra help – which gives the chance for you to become part of our story.
From the Rusts Shelter and the two model yacht ponds to benches, plants, and equipment, North Lodge Park has benefited from donations since it opened in 1929. Friends of North Lodge Park volunteers continue the tradition. For £90 you can be part of the North Lodge Park story by sponsoring a plank on our new bridge.
For £90 you can sponsor one of the new bridge planks, and includes – if you would like to do so – an inscribed 4” x 2” plaque with up to three lines of your own words.
Online Sponsorship Form
Part of the next phase will be to place benches on the upper lawn; we are in the early stages of planning this. If you are interested in sponsoring a bench, please leave your details here.
Unfortunately all the planks have been sponsored, thank you for your interest.
