“IN NEED OF SOME TLC”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 21, 2012

Heaton Park is a very old park steeeped in history. Although run by Manchester City Council it could do with someone to oversee some aspects of it as there are some repairs and tidying up needed. Although Manchester is known as being The Rainy City there is no excuse in the summer months for not making sure that benches are repaired and paths tidied and all liiter bins emptied at 11:00am on a Sunday

“Nice in the sun with the kids”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 12, 2012

Was a lovely day, we had a trip on the tram ( paid £3.40 ) sat watching the boats on the lake eating ice cream. The children loved the farm area although not many animals around.

The play area wasn't great, aimed at older children ours are 3 and it was all too high or dangerous for them! Was also very busy
The is ment to be a sand activity area but this was full of stale water not great trying to keep the kids out of that !
