Walked to Burrs Country Park during first week of June. On arrival there were a group of kids having a go at the climbing wall. Went into the activity centre - the café was closed. 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

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

I love Burrs with it being a local spot it's perfect for cycling, walking and taking the dog. Lots of areas to wander through, see the east lancs train pass by, activities for schools and often events on in the main field. Picnic benches are about, though not as many as once was. The walk from Burrs past the weir... More
