Recent work has included rebuilding and extending the pavilion, extending the playground and creating a ‘figure of eight’ jogging and activities track within the park. These improvements were funded mainly through the Active England project.

Hillsborough Park Tram Stop is on the yellow route to Middlewood.
Hillsborough Park is served by several bus routes, with the most frequent being the 20 and 53 First Mainline services.
