Ellington Park is a 126-year-old late Victorian and Edwardian landscaped park across 13 acres of land in the Central Harbour Ward of Ramsgate, Thanet. Ellington Park was laid out in 1893 on land once part of the estate surrounding Ellington House.

Today the park is a magnet for the community and is used every day by residents for a whole host of activities including many organised by the Friends of Ellington Park.

The project saw BJF Group construct a brand-new Café and Toilets at the top of the park designed by Clague Architects as well as repairing and upgrading pathways throughout and installing a new playground complete with inclusive features.

National Lottery Players funded the Ellington Park project via the Heritage Fund, which will renovate the bandstand; restore the best features of the original 1893 Joseph Cheal landscape scheme, improve play facilities and provide a much needed café and toilets, alongside 5 years of activity in the park.
