  • This park is not bad for BBQ but not the best for families or someone looking for a decent park, I usually go to Birtch field park (5 minutes walking from Plattfield park) as it is better for families...  more »

  • So many events go on in this park, it's great. Nice to walk around the park's pond (lots of ducks, geese and herons), tennis courts, BMX tracks, 2 kids play areas, handy bike repair shop, orchard, a mini garden canned Shakespeare's garden and plenty of space for picnics on a nice day! Great park!
  • Beautiful park with old trees, Shakespeare gardens are lovely. Love all the different sections. Bring the boats back in summer :)
  • A typical public park with boating lake and plenty of room for football and other games. Even has toilet facilities. Don't go very early or very late as sometimes odd characters appear (maybe I'm wrong) up to no good.
  • My local park is a great spot with a lovely little lake and plenty of ducks and the like. A nice little bit of nature in the city
  • Big park ideal for children with a lake with swans in the middle, good family day out and lots of space for runners!

Where to stay in Manchester

Some of Manchester's finest hotels are located near the city center. Staying there will keep you close to all of the city's main attractions, as well as its main road and rail networks. Manchester's centrally located hotels boast modern rooms, good food, and friendly staff. From there you can easily explore Manchester's famous pubs, rooftop bars, and restaurants. For a more leisurely and quiet experience of the city, venture farther away from the central areas. There you can explore a world of relatively inexpensive boutique hotels and self-catering apartments, especially convenient for visitors using Manchester as a base for exploring northern England and North Wales.
