Located near Harborough town centre, Welland Park is the main park in the Harborough District, offering a range of facilities to visitors. The Millennium Mile cyclepath and footpath running alongside the River Welland links the park Harborough’s Train Station. The park includes a Rose Garden, Playing field, Tennis Courts, Bowling Green, Mini Golf Course, Cafe, Riverside walk, and many beautifully planted flowerbeds. There is also a small skate park adjoining the main section of the park.

The park was awarded a Green Flag award for its high standards in 2007, and has received the award in 2008 and 2009 as well (at the time of writing the 2010 awards are yet to be announced). The park also plays a large part in Harborough’s entry to the East Midlands in Bloom Competition, in which the town consistently does well.
