Heaton Park Boating Lake – Ship Shape Fun for all the Family

Family friendly

Get shipshape and explore Heaton Park‘s boating lake this summer.

Take your pick from a rowing boat, a pedal boat or even a swan-themed boat. Sessions last from 25 mins to 50 mins so there’s plenty of time to explore the beautiful lake and navigate the islands.

And once you’ve worked up a hunger from all of that exercise – why not visit The Lakeside Cafe to replenish and refuel? Perfect.
