Great for all the family or just on your own. Lovely gardens and small lake with fish, used to be lots of terrapins, but did not see last time I visited. Children love the little zoo, my granddaughter does and there is a big play area with swings, slides etc. for all age groups. Crazy golf and a few picnic tables dotted around with lots of open grassed area for children to run round and play. It is free to enter, but not free parking, still a lovely place to take a picnic, weather permitting. Nice at any time of year really, try it yourselves.

Walton Gradens is effectively a free outing for the family with a good playground aimed at a wide age group, mini-zoo,pretty fenced lakeand plenty of grass for picnics and games. There is a train to take you round bu there is a charge for this and also for crazy golf and the pitch and putt, you will have to pay for the car park. There is a much improved cafe although at busy times service can be slow. Look out for events taking place such as craft fairs etc. Sometimes there are extra things for the children such as trampoline, rides and pottery painting but these have to be paid for.

Walton gardens is perhaps the only good thing about Warrington, the town where I was born. A lovely place to spend the afternoon -there is a petting zoo for the kids, pitch and put and crazy golf plus some very pleasant ornamental gardens. This used to belong to the Greenhalls family and there is a little museum and coffee shop.

You can also walk to Walton reservoir and on up to Hill Cliff with views over Warrington and beyond to the peal district. It can get very busy at weekends though so choose a weekday for your visit. can you believe that at one point the Council were going to sell off part of it to a luxury hotel chain??
