  • One of our favourite walks. On busy days they charge a small fee for parking, so take some change. There is a small animal park, boating lake, very clean toilet facilities and two cafes that aren't two expensive. The park is great with a sandpit just outside. They are currently renovating the park and are spending lots of money with a tree top adventure opening soon this will be the place to be this summer.
  • Heaton Park is a good 'go-to' day out in nice weather. Plenty of footpaths, both accessible and some more woodland types. Good facilities on site, decent cafe with toilets, play areas, small farm, lake, ice cream van and land train. Usually always busy to a degree but not crowded unless there is an event on. Take some nuts if you want to feed the incredibly tame squirrels!
  • Good place to walk for an evening. Kids love now upgraded play area. Good for bicycling. Some concerts over the weekend.
  • The park was very large and a lot of open spaces to accommodate the music festival that I want to. Unfortunately I do not see much I'm parked outside of the area that I was in because it was quarantined off for the music festival. I am mainly giving it for starts with the ease of access through bus and trim
  • Our dog absolutely adores it here. There's lots of lush rolling greenery for her to bound around on. There's also a small cafe near the southern car park which serves a variety of hot drinks and ice creams. All in all, a very pleasant place to be - at any time of the year.
