This is such a great park with some amazing woodwork features. Sadly we only had 90 minutes here but we will definitely be coming back to explore it further. A lot of the path is buggy friendly and so much to see.

The Park has lots of different asp3cts to it but very much the “ outdoors” rather than a municipal park. No children’s playground but lots for children to do - running around, climbing trees, picnicking, riding bikes, feeding birds. RSPB often there. Pity the cafe...More

Quite beyond its initial ‘wow’ factor, this gorgeous park offers the ultimate in tranquility! Its autumn colours reflect the most beautiful of Nature’s palette. Easily accessible by public transport: buses 42 or 142 from downtown. Just ask the bus driver to stop at the Didsbury...More

This little gem of a park is not much known either to long-term residents. A perfect hideaway location if you need somewhere to chill out and detox of the buzz of city life.

I must admit, the parking is not joy, but don't let that put you off! The gardens were beautiful, especially in Autumn. A really relaxing stroll. The cafe was really cosy and cute, as well as very reasonably prised. Although a small selection of cakes,...More

Looking a bit in need of love and attention. Cafe did not appear to be open despite the times on the door saying it was. Extensive grounds with lots to explore.
