    The Tynwald National Park is set in 25 acres of picturesque countryside. It was created to mark the millennium anniversary of The Manx parliament. Within the park there is a range of ornamental and native Manx trees as well as trees from the Island’s 17 Manx parishes (a little nod to Tynwald hill ). There is also a sheltered area, duck pond, childrens playground and picnic site with views over St Johns.

    The park is open daily all year round and admission is free.

    Tynwald Hill is the site of the yearly open air meeting of the Island’s parliament for Tynwald day on July 5th. The hill itself is 72 foot high and is thought to be made from piles of stones bonded with soil from all of the Island’s 17 ancient parishes. It is believed that the Tynwald ceremony was established by the Vikings who built the hill in the 13th century. You can visit Tynwald Hill on the Manx National Day and see a reading of the summary of laws that have been passed throughout the year in both English an Manx.
