Heaton Park is a huge family park owned by Manchester City Council, 4 miles north of the city centre andÂ where there is so much to see and do that you'll keep coming back again and again.
Heaton Park is one of the largest municipal parks in Europe, and has been a Green Flag Award winning park since 2005. Covering 247 hectares of parkland, it nestles in the foothills of the Pennines, ringed by the former mill towns of Oldham, Rochdale and Bury.
A Grade II listed park on English Heritage's Register of Historic Parks and Gardens, Heaton Park contains 8 listed structures including the splendid Grade I listed Heaton Hall, a James Wyatt houseÂ described by Pevsner as 'one of the finest houses of its period in the country'.
Its spectacularÂ gently rolling scenery provides an attractive setting for leisure activities for visitors of all ages. It is also a memorable setting for many outdoor events, like summer fun days and family workshops, bonfire and firework displays, theatrical productions, concerts and other major events.
Manchester Leisure manages the park in partnership with commercial organisations and community groups and together they make a visit to Heaton Park a great day out for the whole family.
