Absolutely love fletcher moss, me & my partner have been going regularly ever since we started seeing each other so it has lots of lovely memories for us! I fell ill a few years ago & now require a wheelchair & am really pleased we can still access most of the park. Lots of lovely picnic spots & little areas to wander around, you could be anywhere in the world here & forget you're actually in manchester!

My wife and I found the online brochure to be deceptive; it gives the impression of being somewhere breathtaking. We anticipated wandering through a vast expanse of various colourful flowers, trees and bushes ....Imagine our disappointment when we found ourselves cautiously pottering around narrow paths in what can, at best, be described as a large back-garden with a small pond in it. Oh, and - sorry - a bench.

If there's nothing good on Netflix, maybe consider visiting these 'botanical' gardens, but don't expect an amazing day out - a large portion of which will probably be spent trying to find somewhere to park.

We have passed the entrance to the park many times in the car but decided to go yesterday. It is a wonderful park. It has a lovely rockery garden, woodland walk and rose garden. If you have children there is also plenty of room for them to run about. A true hidden gem!

After spending an hour trying to find somewhere to park and scratching my car down a narrow lane, fletcher moss park was a terrible disappointment! Very overgrown and lots of the plants were dead-the place looked almost derelict! Definitely not like the brochure! Wouldn't return there again!

Being there by seeing recommendations on tripadvisor and wasn't regret. The scenes are nice and worth 3 hours staying there. The garden is very fresh and suitable to walk, enjoy and read. I walk along the riverside with a gentle bridge. Impressive and would highly recommend for those who love nature. Only issue is the toilets having no sink to wash hands
