Belle View Park tour City of Newport Proposed Launch Showcase
The land on which the park stands was a gift to the town from Lord Tredegar in 1891 to provide a public park for the people of Newport. An open competition to design and construct the park was won by Thomas Mawson (1861-1933) of Windermere who went on to design many gardens in Cumbria, including Holker Hall and Rydal Hall as well as Dyffryn Botanic Garden in Cardiff. In November 1892 Lord Tredegar performed the ceremony of cutting the first sod; construction began and the park opened on 8 September 1894. The final cost of the Park is recorded as £19,500.

Additional features were added including the Gorsedd Stone Circle in 1896 for the National Eisteddfod held in Belle Vue park in 1897. The bowling greens were opened in 1904 and a tea house added in 1910. In 1924 the adjoining house and grounds of Belle Vue House came into the council’s ownership and the additional 11 acres of land were absorbed into the park, which now extends to 26 acres.  An extensive restoration completed in 2008 n and it is to be hoped that if Thomas Mawson were to sit here today, he would be pleased to see that his original design for a public park has been faithfully and sensitively restored, providing an important leisure facility for both residents and visitors to Newport alike for many more years to come. The park was awarded Green Flag status for the first time in 2008.
