Have heard about Heaton Park and its reputation many times before. Popped in for an evening stroll with the kids while staying in the area. Foolishly headed for the bit around the lake thinking it would be lovely. Horrible, horrible, horrible. Litter everywhere from bottles to beer cans, more bottles and a few more beer cans. Little plastic bags of... More

There is a large lake with ducks and you can go on the boats. There is food in the cafe ice cream van and a fun fair with stalls. There is 2 parks and a farm. Very good day out.

It is a right pain in the bottom if it's a music event, bloody brilliant place once you're there. There's very little event parking, when you have someone pick you up they block roads off, you end up at the opposite side of the park because they won't let you go out the way you came in. Once you're there... More

I live about 5 miles from the park,and I walk around the park on average 3 times a week,walking around 3 miles each time. With around 600 acres to explore,it always makes for an invigorating walk,weather permitting !! It beats using main roads. Always meet people I have made friends of over the years.

Come a few times a year with our children. It's a lovely place to have a walk and really enjoy the boats. We normally take a picnic so can't comment on the cafe. The playground with the big slide can sometimes be a bit busy and I have seen so many children come flying off the end and bang there... More

In response to those people who complain about the litter, well, it's 'people' who put it there in the first place. Yes, there could be a more concerted effort to clear it, but when thousands of visitors on a dry weekend just couldnt care less, it is a loosing battle. The rats, they are there because of the litter, and... More
