Ogden waters is a great place but its very tiring! Its like a forest place with a path going around the river which is very tiring because it tires you if you go tae a water bottle because you get thirsty! I would reccomed this to walkers but not to people who hte walking long distances!

Went here as near but just so much concrete everywhere and place feels false. A bit chavvy with booming music in cars with people just sat in the car and people with really aggressive rough dogs. Not a place I'd go back to. Might be nicer very first thing early morning.

Ogden water is a great stroll or a strenuous walk and, whichever path you feel like taking, you'll have plenty to look at no matter what time of year you visit.

Brilliant leisurely walk. Can be tougher if you go into the woods or up to the turbines. Great in all weathers no seasons. I always have my dog off lead and have had no trouble. Really recommend for families and dogs.

A truly beautiful place to walk hidden amongst the hills of Halifax. My wife and I look forward to taking our dog around here at least once a week. However certain dog owners just leave their dog poo in the path ways, there is no need as there are lots of bins within easy access of the walkways, it's just... More

Generally a very good place for walks with the family and pets but if your expecting alot of wildlife, gree grass then this isnt the place for you. Lovely views during sunset which is the best time to go. Overall it was ok but not what id hoped for.

Took the dogs and kids, 2 yr old and twin 10 yr olds. Weather was nice, Found a nice parking spot on top car park. The walk was just right for our 2 yr old grandson, paths were easy and well maintained, lots of smaller paths branching away from the water, we didn't explore too much but would come back... More
