  • The new refurbished park is brilliant kids love it. Toilets there as well and playing court. A small walk McDonald's near and the boating lake a lovely place to visit.
  • The new refurbished play ground is excellent for the kids they love it. There are also lots of areas for them to explore and the reservoir is very picturesque, the whole park is lovely given the location you wouldn't expect it! It gets a little scruffy during times when the fairground is on we just avoid
  • Lovely well kept park great for dog walking kids or picnics. Only a small car park though.
  • Great park for children to run around ,a good play area ,toilets and picnic areas,lovely views around the reservoirs and easy walking specially in the park as quite flat,and take plenty of bread for the birds
  • Great place to walk , you could be in the Lake District and you're actually in Gorton!
