Looking back at 75 photo memories of Wicksteed Park's rides, events and Wicky Bear

The new season starts this weekend

Wicksteed Park has provided the perfect place for families to go and enjoy the outdoors – with something for everyone whatever their age.

Attractions come and go – skatepark, swimming pool, velodrome, golf course and the popular pirate ship firm favourites.

Slides, swings, boating and picnics have provided incredible fresh air fun enjoyed by lucky Northamptonshire residents for more than a century.

And the family-friendly park can still be accessed and enjoyed for free thanks to founder Charles Wicksteed.
