Roe Lee Park
Roe Lee Park was opened on Wednesday 30th May 1923. It occupied 16 acres of land given to the town by Messrs Duckworth and Eddleston of Roe Lee Mills. The park was intended to commemorate the visit of King George to Blackburn in 1913. The employees were granted a half day holiday and flags flew from the mill. John Duckworth officiated, opening the pavilion with a golden key handed to him by the Borough Engineer, which was later presented to the Mayor. The park had 5 tennis courts and 3 bowling greens.
