Interesting woodland walk. The gardens are nicely looked after. Unfortunately visited after a rainy day, and paths were completely covered by water... There is a small tea shop, looks cute but not much in offer. Very basic.

Disheveled and disappointing. The gardens might be pretty, but the walk is badly signposted, lots of dog toilet leftovers, most areas not looked after well at all. With a dog it's probably great but with kids or a partner I wouldn't recommend

A visit to the park would not be complete without checking out what local exhibition is being held in the Parsonage adjacent to the park. This... More

The park itself is nicely laid out with shrubs and trees, a grassy area with seating (and portable radios). There is a small cafe too. Also the visit may be extended into a wetland area, so long as you have the right footwear, and to even longer walks which we did not explore. There are also tennis courts which can... More

A very surprising lovely corner of a busy town. Its not far from Didsbury village tucked away behind The Didsbury Pub. The Orchid House is brilliant.
