  • The are multiple access points to get into the park, there is multiple car parks but on certain days you will have to pay for parking. The senary around the park is beautiful with key points that are outstanding. There are two play grounds for kids, one recently refurbished but the other in a poor state of repair, the path ways are in area need vital attention which can said about Heating Hall with needs a lot of repairs. The barn is good to visit as it has a coffee shop and also hot and cold foods available. The small farm is good to visit as it's educational for the young children with the variety of animals to view and interact with.
  • Perfect park! Lots of facilities. Golf course, boats, outdoor theatre. Beautiful, very well maintained. Great cafe catering for youngsters also. Could easily spend an entire day.
  • We go for a walk almost every weekend. It's nice and spacious park with a lake. It has many footpaths which takes you you in all directions there is a farm where you can visit and see some Peaks lambs rabbits chickens. Don't forget to go through the Tyne Tunnel as me and my daughter college or you can also go over it.
  • It's a slightly run down park maintained by Manchester City Council who don't have enough money to look after to it to National Trust standards but the cafe is acceptable. The park itself is large enough for a good walk and there are one or two features to look at, cattle, donkeys, a sort of zoo. It's alright for an occasional visit but is not somewhere you'll want to visit often.
  • It's a very big Park very nice to run around jog and for taking your dog 🐶 along with you it's got about 4 car parks.some car parks are really good.some need improvement.its has a little zoo. And a kids play area.it has a lake aswell with boats. Not easy to know where every thing is when you go for the first time because the size of the park is too big so keep in mind you will need to walk a lot!!!
