Me and my friends visit the park regularly. And from the amount of times I have been I have never had a bad word to say about it. It's always clean and a very nice place to chill with friends. =)

I would have liked to have given it a 5 star rating or at worst a 4 and a half but apart from nice views and in a great town there isn't much else apart from the old Bolton, Bury, Manchester Canal (Disused) This is a great walk through the park and there is some interesting industrial heritage signage along...

I have been here a few times and I find that it is such a beautiful place lots of places to walk and enjoy the beautiful scenes. Such a great place to spend the day walking around and admiring the views. It's a place to enjoy on your own and with others.

Moses gate is amazing for children of all ages, I took my 4 year old son to feed the ducks and we saw some gorgeous baby swans . We sat on the grass area and enjoyed are picnic, We then headed to the Park for a play and a walk down to the river Where we paddled.

Over the years I've been visiting this place it has just seem to go down hill. Around the main pond the grass is balding in areas, Bird crap everywhere. (Yes I'm aware it's a nature reserve) Surely the paths around the pond could be swept. My biggest disappointment was the fauna. If you enjoy looking at Japanese Knotweed that you'll... More

What a fabulous place! Walks, scenery, ducks, lakes, canal, park, coffee, ice cream, picnic! What more could a family want or need? Kept our 2 year old occupied and we'll definitely be returning throughout the year.

So much to do, so much space. A really great park for kids to be kids and explore and enjoy, without too much structure. All welcome with bicycles, scooters and much more. Always a weekend staple to make sure we go. Has the best ice-cream van too.

Great place to take the family and pets for walks in the woods, feed the ducks and swans etc. Even fish if you have time.
