More than just a walk in the park, Heaton Park is a historic area on the edge of Manchester with all the attractions offering a full day out for all ages.
Take advantage of a packed events programme that takes place each year including outdoor concerts, dramas and plays. Also don't miss Heaton Hall's beautifully restored interiors to get a taste of the 18th century, with a collection of furniture, musical instruments and occasional recitals in the Music Room.
Visit the play areas, cafe's, Animal Centre, Tram Museum, bowling greens, golf course, boating lake, or try your hand at horse riding. You can also have a go at rowing boats, join in on walks and runs at the park, orienteering and even fishing.
Fancy a kick of the football? You can also hire a pitch here and enjoy Heaton park's very own pitches.
Heaton Park also exhibits a Treetop Trek, an aerial adventure where you will weave through the tree canopy up to a jaw-dropping height of 15m, featuring 35 exciting obstacle challenges including balance bars, swinging logs and Indiana bridges along with a super 24 zip wires!
