Preston Moor, the beautiful slice of paradise off Blackpool Road, is the city's oldest and largest park. Its long-standing history has seen it through World War I & II, this very site functioning as a hospital and prisoner camp in respective tragedies. Today it is a buzzing community hub playing host to concerts and cultural events. State-of-the-art sports facilities catering to football, cricket, basketball and tennis attract a large number of sport enthusiasts. Manicured lawns, lush green surroundings and the lovely Serpentine lake have a contagious, serene and calming effect on mind, body and soul.
