Newest Review: ... impressive Grade 1 listed manor house. Unfortunately it is currently closed and out of use and will be for the next few years while renovations and upgrades are carried out. Its still worth a visit though as its lovely even fro the outside and as it sits at the highest point of the park the views of Greater Manchester and the surrounding countryside are spectacular. On a clear day you can ... more

Manchester is a wonderful city, but sadly unlike London it is not renowned for its green spaces. Thanks to its industrial heritage parks in the inner areas of the city are small, few and far between. Thankfully, Heaton Park is nearby, just a few miles outside the city centre, easily accessible from inner areas via A roads and from the M60 ring road. According to Wikipedia, Heaton Park is one of the largest municipal parks in Europe. It was given to the city by the Earl of Wilton at the turn of the 20th Century and has been managed by the local authority ever since. They do an excellent job in my opinion of keeping the park clean, safe, attractive and of ... Read the complete review

This is one of my best places to visit. I have been going to Heaton Park since I was little and I now take my Daughter there on a regular basis. It is normally very popular with families and Dog Walkers. Heaton Park is owned by the council and is free to enter. You may have to pay for parking if busy but they only charge a pound for as long as you want. There is a little farm and stables where you can take the children to visit the animals, there is many to see as they have rabbits, chickens, horses, pigs, cows etc. They also have a Squirrel area that if you're lucky you can feed them and they will come right up to you and take it out of the hand. ...

Heaton Park is a nice breath of fresh air inside a huge city which is over developed and has so much traffic congestion. Located near to junction 18 of the M60 near Prestwich, and it's very accesible with multiple entances. I stay on the same road about 1 minutes walk from the park and am a frequent user. It has a pond, of sorts, a playpark for kids, nice forest walks and even a couple of football pitches. Also with the Commonwealth games coming to manchester we now have a bowling green too. Also there is a garden centre, zoo and even tennis courts and basketball courts. The zoo isn't extensive but does give something for you to look at while your walking around. Read the complete review

Heaton Park is situated near to junction 18 of the M60 near Prestwich, Manchester; and is approximately 20 minutes from Manchester City Centre. Heaton Park is set in approximately 650 acres of landscaped parkland, including woodlands and lots of open green space, which is Grade II by the English Heritage. In addition, there are nine listed buildings within the grounds of Heaton Park, including the magnificent neo-classical Heaton Hall Grade I listed country house, which has beautifully restored 18th century interiors – well worth a visit, especially as admission is free of charge, but note, the mansion is only open from Thursday through Sundays, and Bank ...
