Really enjoy Heaton Park for a long walk, especially great if you enjoy runs up and down hilly areas. This park has many steep hills to run! There is a small cafe by the main lake area and while there the cafe owner told us they also have another establishment that serves food near the animal park. I didn't visit... More

We stumbled on the place whilst visiting family. We decided to walk the dog as we'd heard the park was good. It was brilliant. There is a boating lake in which the dog enjoyed a swim. Road train for the kids. A team museum and a working vintage tram. There is a small petting zoo for younger kids. Some nice... More

Accessible by bus no.135 from Manchester city centre or Bury bound tram also from Manchester city centre. Public toilets are available in park at the Stables. Visited in winter so some attractions offered in Spring and Summer (such as boats rental for the boating lake, segways, donkey rides etc., not available, however, still a lot of historical landmarks to see,...

Used Heaton park on many occasions for Hill sprints. Best place for me is the bell Tower Hill. Has a nice steep gradient and is normally quiet enough to be able to run without impeding people. On other activities, Heaton park is an awesome venue. The only part I dislike is having to pay for parking. This is criminal and... More

This is a great park for a day out, miles of paths to walk along and lots of green space. We came here on a cold and bleak winters day but it still looked lovely. The only downsides are that the cafe we went to near the animal centre was very poorly run, there wasn't much choice and it seemed... More

We live very close to this park and love walking around it in all seasons - there is so much to see and do in summer particularly - animal centre, lake, parks, boating and there's a lovely cafe opened up which does great homemade soup! A great family day out!

If you have time to take the family for a stroll/bike ride, go to Heaton Park. Its beautiful no matter what the weather is like, there are long walks, a boating lake, a children's playground and small animal farm (try the spring when the chicks are born)! The only problem is car parking as it can get very busy.
