Nice park, but horrible animal farm

This is a nice park to have a walk at the north part of Manchester. The park itself is very large and good for a walk. There is a small lake, animal farm and two golf courses (a... read more

This is a nice park to have a walk at the north part of Manchester. The park itself is very large and good for a walk. There is a small lake, animal farm and two golf courses (a par-3 and full course). However, the animal farm is horrible. Small shelters with just grass/mud. Just a couple of pigs, chickens and...

A great day out venue for the family. The Hall now owned by Manchester council is open to the public most days. The Park is some 600 acres and bosts a boating lake,small zoo, and many other attractions. Those who watch Coronation St may recognise some of the background locations. Next to the Park is a Golf course.

On the outskirts of Manchester this is a lovely park for walks and doing things. I remember my student days and playing crazy golf or something. There are usually some good music gigs through the year as well.

Heaton Park has quite an impressive range of things to do, from the usual park activities of walking, sports, relaxing etc to formal golf courses, and a petting zoo. Something for everyone at what I believe is one of the biggest parks in Europe.

Visited for the first time today . Kids had a great time on their scooters , lots of wildlife and a small animal park. Great way to get kids to burn off their energy whilst you enjoy a lovely walk too. The Stables cafe was lovely and we had a nice snack, very nicely furnished and very clean. Will be... More

I'm so happy I found a walk so close to my house in the centre of Manchester! The park is perfect for everyone and there's lots of parking. I really did enjoy the views and will be returning again, I'm excited for summer already having found the perfect place for a picnic and stroll with friends. My boyfriend and I... More

The park is big so be prepared to walk a lot. It is over 600 achres. The lake is good and people feed the water birds a lot of bread which really isn't good for them. It fills them up but can cause malnutrition as they need to have well balanced diet suitable for their breed. Tip: read up on... More
