Really open & a place to still see nature, alot of human damge still occurs, but seemingly well managed. We've been told about a few more things they may do - so looking forward to learn more.

Going in the Autumn with many facilities closed thanks to the lockdown we weren't expecting to be able to do much, but went for the Autumnal colours, fresh air and views. The only negatives was the cafe next to the boating lake being well overpriced for an average bacon sarnie and barriers around the damaged Temple. Memory tells me the views are splendid when the weather is good, but it was wet and cloudy when we went, yet it is still a lovely location to spend a few hours and is so very easily accessible from the City centre.

Attend the park often as we live close by. Always parking available. Unlimited amount of open space to run around. The little one loves running along the old railway lines and seeing the donkeys there

This must be the most mismanaged park in the Northwest, for it's size and funding. Pros Hugely popular, with visitors flocking from miles around, to enjoy the expanses of paths and lawns. Spacious and good parking and paths. Good toilet facilities (when open). Litter picked regularly. Boating, but over-priced. Cons Eroded ground around lake, (that takes 10yrs+ to happen). Years and years of stagnant uncleared natural debris in water. No annual flower beds ANYWHERE! Just spring bulbs and perennials. Play area poorly planned, especially as it was recently rebuilt. It would appear that the park is managed on grants. The park is left to just get by, and in some places, erode, until a grant is received to change something. Recently charges were introduced to the car park. There is "ParkLife" each year which is a big money maker, but still no improvement. When compared with other parks around England, it becomes obvious how poorly this park is managed. There is no BMX track, no skateboard rink, no water fountains, no flower beds, no outdoor exercise machines, no jogging routes, no zip wire, poor sign posting, no bike hire, no walking trails, and no wardens in the play area when big teens take it over. There are not enough activities for kids. Over the last 20 years one would expect one new feature each year for a park this size. Unfortunately, the council has ripped off the locals, with very minor improvements that allow them to hype up, instead of real improvements. This is a park that has no real management. The management care about the food hall and litter. There is also the 5k run and funfairs, but they are at the expense of the core services that should have been built year on year. Summary: The park does not cater for the core users - families, dog walkers, and joggers. It has become a cash cow for the council. It is unfair to close huge swathes of the park for events, to charge £80/yr for locals to park, and it is a disgrace that the area has not had the improvements expected of a modern park. If any reader doubts anything I have written, just check Clissold Park in London on Trip advisor, and see what they have crammed into an area 1/4 of the size, adding year on year.
