Belle Vue Park

Belle Vue park is found in North Lowestoft, next to the Ravine and perched on the cliff above Sparrows Nest Park. The park was opened in 1874, being the first free public park in Lowestoft. During this time, the Lowestoft Improvement Committee chose the open common land to create what they described as a symbol of Lowestoft's growing civic pride.
