Spout Yard Park is a community run park in the centre of Louth in Lincolnshire, England. Spout Yard nestles between the residential areas of Northgate and Broadbank, with the River Lud flowing beside it. Originally the site of a Victorian tannery, Spout Yard was beautifully transformed into a community park and opened to the public in 2007. Its gardens and children’s play areas are open during daylight hours, offering a welcoming space for people of all ages to meet, relax and play.
There are children’s play areas, a delightful garden for relaxation, a performance space, Art gallery and kiosk selling refreshments.
The park hosts events throughout the year.
Spout Yard is home to the only permanent exhibition space in the Louth area. The outdoor stage area is used for live music events and activities such as Louth’s renowned Zero Degrees Festival and the gallery hosts a range of prestigious and exciting exhibitions.
The gallery is available for hire and has become a regular meeting place for a whole range of community groups, schools and charities.
Local artist, Jayne Cooper, exhibited during the 2017 Zero Degree’s festival. The exhibition included a display entitled “The Great Wall of Wyatt”, featuring Jayne’s depictions of Louth’s legendary jazz musician, Robert Wyatt.
Other scheduled exhibitions and events, can be found on the Spout Park Yard web site.
