You can go here for one hour to all day, been here several times with children, dogs, teenagers all enjoyed the time, walking around the lake going into the woodlands, even the park and a picnic. You can walk to the Mecano Bridge.

Close to Manchester, in Bolton area, one of the most magnificent places to chill and see all kind of wildlife, if you are patient and lucky enough! If you like birds, that's your place!

It has something for everyone-kids would love the large modern playground, feeding the ducks and swans, running around in the fields, older people can enjoy a nice long walk around the ponds and can have rest on one of the benches decorated with dedications.
