There are also plenty of cafes dotted around the shopping centre, making shopping trips a more relaxing experience.


A Shopping Centre That’s Seen To Go Green

From electric vehicle charging points and green energy suppliers. To solar panels which have generated enough energy to boil a kettle 7,179,364 times. Dalton Park has plenty to brag about in terms of being eco-friendly. There is extensive and ongoing work on the site’s Parkland with native trees and wildlife trails, and transformed under-used space into ‘Pollinator Parks’ to support and care for local wildlife and repair broken ecosystems using small scale rewilding methods.


A Walk In The Park

Along with the bright and airy shopping centre, Dalton Park also offers 55 acres of landscaped Parkland opposite to it. In 2003 over 600,000 cubic metres of colliery spoil was shifted in order to create space for the construction of the buildings and car parks of the retail outlet. All of the material excavated on site was re-used to create the hills and valleys of the Parkland. Re-cycled organic waste was used to enrich the colliery shale so that colonies of woodland, wetland and wildflower meadows could be established.


A Place To Play

Along with the wide variety of shops and activities, there is also a free children’s play area. The play area has a full suite of exciting and interactive equipment for children aged between 2 and 10 years. It includes a number of accessible, inclusive features such as an extra wide slide, easy access ramps, and in-ground roundabout suitable for wheelchairs. Children can also enjoy games and puzzles, musical elements, and role play with a shop counter and captain’s wheel.
