Huge park with tons of things to do. There's a boating lake, a farm, loads of historical buildings, a museum and loads more, plus vast open green spaces. Perfect for a family day out with the dog. There are also shops and cafes on site and the car parking is a very reasonable £1.50 for most of the day, with... More

I never tire of visiting Heaton Park - a green lung in the Greater Manchester suburbia which attracts all ages. Plenty of walks for exercise lovers and dog walkers, four eating establishments to keep you going, golf courses, farm, boating lake, period trams, several childrens' playgrounds, garden centre, plenty of car parks (free using the week) and the historic observatory...

To be honest there's not much there. A lot of grass areas you can sit, play with the children or have a picnic. There's also a big lake that I think I've only seen open a hand full of times when the weather is nice. That you can take paddle boat rides on. There is also a little cafe by... More

Went here as a family, with a baby in a pram, there is lots & lots of space for everyone, a boating lake, with cafe & ice cream, animal centre & cafe, brilliant views over Manchester, overall a great place just to walk with friends, family or even on your own, the dog walkers always say hello . . ....

Visited Heaton Park after many years away and it brought back just what an amazing park this is. Beautifully landscaped. Incredible vistas at every corner. So lucky to have a municipal park of this nature so close to the city. Park facilities are so-so, but special mention for the cafe at the old stables. Great value for money food, friendly... More
