  • Such a peaceful little park beautifully maintained. The kids live it as well with lots of hidden corners - great for a game of hide and seek.
  • Wonderful hidden gem. Many 'rooms' in this garden with surprises round every corner. A dovecote, a field of daffodils(it's March), a Japanese garden, a Wisteria arch, a theatre lawn, a woodland walk, a small wild garden and a border walk. Delightful easily missed in the middle of a built-up area. Seek it out...!
  • So peaceful. The wisteria tunnel is amazing.
  • The garden is really quite a surprise in the fact you would probably pass it buy if you didn't know it was there. Relaxing and colourful to walk around with a Japanese garden included. Parking is available and easily accessible.
  • What a fantastic, small but very nice maintained park! A real germ so close to Manchester
