The historic Gatelodge at Brooke Park will be revealing some of its secrets over the summer as it hosts a special exhibition charting the history of the Victorian Park from its first opening in 1839.

The lodge itself dates back to 1840 and greets visitors at the Cathedral entranceway of the park, which has undergone a major revamp in recent years funded by the Heritage Lottery Fund, Department for Communities and Derry City and Strabane District Council.

The exhibition will tell the park’s colourful story spanning three centuries and will be open to the public from 1st June until the 31st August between 10am – 12noon every Friday, Saturday and Sunday.
