Whether you’re looking for a decent cafe, an animal farm or a boating lake, there are many parks and outdoor activities in Manchester.
Everybody loves a good park. Whether for sauntering and relaxing, or letting the kids run off some energy, Manchester is not short of a good park.
Aside from the huge surroundings of Heaton Park, Wythenshawe Park and Platt Fields Park, Manchester is dotted with smaller local parks too. They’re good places to meet friends, share stories, drink flasks of hot tea and top up your vitamin D. We love that a good park can keep the little ones happy all day too.
For those looking for wilder surroundings – beautifully rugged nature reserves and trails can be found at Chorlton Waterpark, Debdale Reservoir and the Medlock River Valley at Clayton Vale.
