Went for an impromptu trip to Heaton Park. Lovely sunny day. Went with 4 under 5s and paid for them each to have a wristband so they could go on as many rides in the fun fair as they wanted to. Well worth the money! Unfortunately the Stables cafe was terrible- no sandwiches available at 12.15pm on a Wednesday. So... More

Very peaceful, favourite part is the tramway as the staff are very respectful and helpful...the tramway is a definite must do if visiting the park, prices are kinda on the steep side but it's definitely worth it. Love the farm & there's plenty of things for children (farm, tramway, park, etc) and dogs to do (lots of space). I go... More

A beautifully kept huge green space great for picnics but Manchester Council deemed it great planning to pull down the main Park at the height of summer. The other Park closest to the lake is in a stare of complete disrepair and there is barely anything left that is usable. The petting farm looks like it is being done up... More

Liked this park. Good boating pond but for £8.50 have rowed better. Lots of grass to walk around. Not good for people with limb injuries - not many benches (possible improvement?). Had heard good things about the golf from Simon but we were told the driving range is only open as part of lessons and we are not of the... More

Heaton Park is a large park that has beautiful views , especially when the sun is shining. The hall was once a wonderful place to visit, and hopefully will soon be restored back to it's former glory.

I have been visiting this park for approx five years. It is quite large and varied walks around. There is one cafe by the lake also rowing boats to rent. There is a large food venue at the stables, this is more expensive. Captive audience I guess. Heaton Hall is under going some work. There are several concerts per year... More

This place is probably better if you have kids or a dog but when you go with friends and you're all 20+, it's rather boring. Would recommend if you have kids because then you could go on the park and see the farm animals
