A scheme to make Sunnyhurst Wood a public park was first aired in 1887 as a way to commemorate the Jubilee of Queen Victoria, but it was not adopted.  The scheme resurfaced in 1900 and the Mayor Alderman John Tomlinson adopted it as a means to celebrate Edward VII’s coronation.

The opening ceremony took place on Thursday afternoon, 2nd July 1903, followed by a garden party. At 3.30 the company assembled at the gateway in Tockholes Road and the woods were declared officially open.


The Tudor style tea house was erected 1911-12 by public subscription to commemorate the coronation of King George V. The cost of the build was £1,550.

The Kiosk is now a Licensed Function Rooms, Cafe and Ice Cream Shop.
