Great Day Out

Lovely walks. Good play area for kids of all ages. Beautiful scenery. The lake and river trails were most enjoyable.

Great place to take the little one to see wildlife, not for those who don't like ducks or anything of the feathered variety !

This is my hometown, so I'm biased, but I have been coming here and the surrounding area for more than 30 years and I know there is still more to discover. It's simply brilliant. You can stay in the main park area and feed the ducks, swans, geese, observe the wildlife, let the kids play on the park, etc. But... More

What struck us was the sheer number of ducks, geese and swans here. The park itself we only briefly explored but it was nice from what we saw, much better than our trip to jumbles park! Parking was plentiful and free which is always a bonus :) If we go again I must remember to take food for the birds,... More

Huge park with free and very inexpensive attractions for children. Suitable for all age ranges with sand area being very popular. Long straight paths for learner cyclists and large grassy areas for budding footballers. New cafe very reasonable with ok choice of food.

I have been going here for a number of years as it is a nice place to visit if the weather is nice. They have recently built a new park which is quite big and very good to keep the kids entertained - but it can get very busy on a hot day. I do mountain biking and this is... More

We decided to go there after a trip into Bolton centre. We spent half an hour trying to find it as the postcode on the internet took us to a dead end (the wrong side of St. Peter's Way). Gave up in the end because we'd have so little time left to look at it that it wasn't worth continuing... More
