Aireville Park, a large open space with sporting facilities, is available for organisations to book for outdoor events.
Aireville Park dates back to the 1830's when it was part of the Aireville Estate owned by the Dewhurst family. The estate passed into the hands of Skipton Council in 1945 and it was at this time that some sporting facilities were included.
Aireville Park is available for organisations to book for open air (outdoor events). You will need to comply with certain licensing regulations, these are available by contacting the Council (01756) 792805 or email email@example.com
