Massive park, lots of places to sit, easy to find open space for the dog to run around. Stables restaurant was fabulous, had delicious lunch and half a cider each and was even a trough of water for the dog. Grass is closely clipped and we noted there are more than enough litter bins. Only looked round animal park on... More

I visited on a free vintage bus from the Manchester Transport Museum. The vintage trams (usually a Blackpool single decker), run on Sundays between April and November - with a big closing gala on the 23rd.. The ride features part of the original Manchester tramway and runs between the lake and the A576 road. There is a free Museum and... More
