Had a lovely walk round Burrs with family and my 20 month old daughter. It's a beautiful country park and very clean. It's also nice to read the information points and learn what used to be there in the past. Lovely place, can't believe it's almost on my doorstep and I have never been before. Will return soon!

The portable toilets were closed. The pub was OK, we wanted to go there anyway and it was full of notices about toilets being for... More

This is the first visit to Burrs and I was pleasently surprised. We went to the Lost Carnival. This was a very popular event and was busy. The organisation was impressive. We were marshalled into the cordoned off parking. Then walked down to the show. Arrived at 17:00 and stayed until around 21:45. The whole thing was ℅-ordinated to perfection... More

Took our Brownies there for the climbing wall. They had a fantastic time & the staff were excellent. One very nervous Brownie was encouraged to go part-way up the wall & that, in itself, was a very special moment!

They provide an excellent day of challenge and activity for children. We took 45 year 5 children who all had a marvellous day that was filled with challenge, fun and adventure. Staff were friendly, helpful, enthusiastic and knowledgable.

It's great that Bury provides a taste of the outdoors with a water activity centre and nature trail - unfortunately Bury residents see it as fantastic facility for dogs and as a result other visitors find themselves playing hopscotch as they skip over the random piles of dog poop that litter the whole park. Walking in both grass and on... More

The Activity Centre has lots of activities and is great for a birthday party for children and adults of all ages. Set in a beautiful country park which itself is worth the visit, the activity centre caters fro all tastes. The Country park is free and the Brown Cow is ideal for lunch or tea and will serve tea and... More
