Parkside is an area and electoral ward of Barrow-in-Furness, Cumbria, England. It is bordered by Hindpool, Ormsgill, Hawcoat, Newbarns and Risedale and had a population of 5,742 in 2001.[1] It is one of the town's most centralised wards and contains Barrow's main park (hence the ward's name), as well as the newly established Furness Academy. Abbey Road - Barrow's principal road runs down the entire western side of Parkside. The majority of housing to the west of Abbey Road is terraced and semi-detached, whilst the eastern side of Parkside is predominantly parkland and fields with the exception of some semi and detached housing. There are a number of place of worship in Parkside including Abbey Road Baptist Church, Spring Mount Christian Fellowship and Trinity Church Centre.[2] Barrow's first synagogue was founded in 1902 on Abbey Road although it closed less than twenty years later.[3]

Barrow Park

Barrow Park is located entirely within the Parkside ward and covers some 45 acres of land.[4] The Park Leisure centre is situated in the north-east corner of the park, which also contains a large boating lake, mini railway and various playgrounds.[4] Large sections of Barrow Park were redeveloped in 2005 to include a new pavilion, café, bandstand and display glasshouse, since this redevelopment the park has gained Green Flag status.[4] The names of almost 900 Barrovians who lost their lives in various wars are inscribed on the Barrow Park Cenotaph.[5]
