Absolutely loved this place. We couldnt believe we had never been before. Walked along the river through the woods it was beautiful. Then took the steps back up into the park. Some lovely trees and its all really well kept. Well worth a visit.

you would need to check with Stockport Council. However, I have never seen anyone having a BBQ there.
