  • Great little place for a walk around. Very popular with dog walkers so if you don’t like dogs, I wouldn’t go. If you do have a dog and go, make sure you are careful that there isn’t any blue green algae in the mere itself. Only down side to this place is people don’t pick up there dog poo even though there are so many bins around this place.
  • A great place for a short walk with the children. I'm also a regular runner with Park Run most Saturday mornings. The park runs on donations and a dedicated group of volunteers ensure it's kept for the use of Congletons residents and visitors.
  • I love visiting this place. It's a great relaxing walk around the lake. Ducks and coots on the water. You're welcome to feed them.
  • Nice circular walk around the mere, one mile around. Lots of dog walkers all lovely and friendly. The car park usually opens around 8am ish, which I feel is late for us early risers but there are other places to park so not a massive inconvenience. They also ask for a donation for parking, so make sure you carry small change. There's also a brick building which I'm sure you can hire.
  • The Park is wonderful just a shame that the toilets don't get cleaned so make sure you use the loo before you go
