  • I've visited the Dream on quite a few occasions and while the sculpture itself is amazing, the landscaping is disappointing and the trees are decorated with dog poo bags. There are no toilets or bins ...  more »
  • Good paths to walk around the area but mostly used for dog walking area. The dream itself is worth a look to see the size of it. Pleasant quiet stroll hidden in a built up area.  more »
  • Good to visit if you passing by Sutton Manor Woodland, St.- Helens area. It's a lonely place and no information centre or contact persons. It's good for walking with a lot of greenery.  more »

  • OK, so it's a big head... That said it is impressive once you at there. The paths are a little rough and I'm not sure they could be traversed in a wheelchair. There is a free car park at the bottom of the park in Sutton Manor. Take some time and visit this, just off the motorway.
  • Nice walk, not too long with a carpark just nearby. Gets windy but it's an interesting statue.
  • Nice walk up to Dream from several different paths. Unusual find for the area. Only issue are the broken bottles/glass found by the face, need to keep a close eye on young kids running around. Would still recommend a visit.
  • Not much to do here, but it's a lovely walk up and great views of Cheshire
  • This area is worth a look for a couple of hours. Well maintained paths and woodland. There are no facilities,(toilets, cafes etc) on this reclaimed brown field site.
