Read the website this morning. The website really bigs it up. The park is not dreadful, but has either changed significantly since the website was created or the website has some very very selective editing. We walked through the dell, which was covered in quite a lot of litter, lack maintenance and see we saw several large rats! The cafe... More

This park is vast, there is something for everyone from toddlers to pensioners. Small animal centre where you can see peacocks, rabbits, goats etc . Cafe serving healthy homemade snacks also another one by the lake where there are plenty of swans, geese etc. The beautiful hall is under refurbishment should be lovely when finished.

We found the park lovely to walk around and found a nice spot for a picnic too. Along the lines of many other reviewers, the big let down is the condition of the animal enclosures. This is not a zoo, nor does it claim to be. It is simply a few (very small) paddocks containing goats, alpacas, chicken, pigs, peacocks... More

This is a lovely park but don't go to the cafe. Customer service is disgraceful......I was served a raw baked potato, supposedly twice baked but not even cooked! I took it back to the counter, expecting an apology and it to be resolved. The young lady on the till was not very happy and a very rude young man bright... More

went round the park today with my nephew. The park is lovely and big. Nice scenery for a lovely stroll. Disappointed with the animal farm. All the enclosures were filthy and there was no staff to be seen anywhere, so it's not like you can ask about the animals or ask to pet the rabbits etc. the animal farm needs... More

Today we borrowed a friends dogs and hiked through the woodlands. Lovely day, lovely park. It was a nice change for us as we often visit the farm, park and cafe with the children, but with the dogs we went off from our usual haunts. The true scale of the park was appreciated.

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.
