  • Good for gentle stroll round. The basic walk fit for prams and bikes too. Kids loved to feed the ducks. Good choices in the cafe. Toilets not great.
  • A local showed me around here. Very nice especially the weir at the end but quite busy even in september
  • Situated in the Etherow valley between Marple and Romiley you will find Compstall village in the borough of Stockport, lies this lovely country park. There is parking, a cafe, information centre and lots bird life. Walks of all levels from easy to intermediate. Stunning scenery, wildlife and also the Blackthorn music festival every July. Nice for a day out walking through the Keg (woodland walk) along the river Etherow with its stunning water fall.
  • Love it great walk people are friendly that you meet and my little lad loves the ducks and geese
  • Lovley place, well managed park, not open green areas more paths and trees. There is a lovely wheel chair or pram accessible path to go round the majority of the park. Oh and I if you have kids spend a £1 and get some feed for the birds they will have loads of fun feeding them (don't take bread it is bad for the birds, if you want to spend less get the bird feed from Morrison's before you go). Also there is a hidden gem of a ice cream shop hidden in a garden shop. So walk past the cafe (which is great also!) And next thing you come to will be this little garden shop that sells ice cream of many flavours! I love the honey one and the mokka one too!
