Beacon Country Park

Beacon Country Park is West Lancashire District Council's main countryside site, consisting of over 300 acres of rolling countryside on the slopes of Ashurst Beacon which forms a backdrop to the town of Skelmersdale.

There is space to walk, run, ride horses or bicycles, fly kites, or just get away from it all and relax at Beacon Country Park - a combination of flowing meadows and woodlands, commanding majestic views across the Lancashire Plain to the west and the Pennine Hills to the east.

The park includes visitor centre, picnic areas, an orienteering course, nature trail, wheelchair friendly paths, and bridlepath which are open for everyone to enjoy.
