  • Great to walk round (although not sure if it is a full circle) but lacks signs for pathways and so wandered aimlessly for a small while. Very pram friendly, paths are gravelly and a little uneven but ...  more »
  • You can spend hours here, walking around getting lost or just sitting with a book overlooking the flash on the wooden steps by the canal. I've been with the kids, a friend and just on my own numerous ...  more »

  • Lovely place for a quiet walk especially with little kids or a dog. There is a small play area. You can literary walk for Miles. Avoid weekends on a sunny day if you want a peaceful time
  • Wonderful place and the grounds are lovely, we went in the rain and kids loved the puddles. Car park however should be free, that was the only downside
  • Lovely walks and cheap to park, but just wish you didn't have to walk past the ice cream van and the swings to go for a walk, as our little man objects!
  • Always a nice day out at the Flash. Feed the ducks, small play area for kids, ice cream van and burger van. Could do with a cafe
  • A peaceful country park to visit in the Leigh area. It has some great bird watching hides where you can watch and photograph bullfinches, reed bunting, robins, squirrels, kingfishers, herons, and much more! There's plenty of swans, mallards, gulls and geese too on the flash water itself which also plays host to a yachting club. A decent place to take your dog for a walk or run on the large field, to do a spot of walking around the many dirt tracks, to take the kids to (they have a small playground) or just for spending a nice sunny afternoon there. There's parking and toilet facilities at the Flash with an ice-cream van and food van there on most days if you're feeling peckish.
