Parks and Gardens in ManchesterSarah-Clare Conlon, Literature Editor
Parks and gardens in Manchester. From Heaton Park, with the only rowing lake within the M60 (open April to September), to Wythenshawe Park, complete with its beautiful, largely Tudor Hall, there’s plenty of green spaces to visit around Manchester and Salford without having to escape to the country.
There are hidden city centre gems like St John’s Gardens complete with John Owens’ grave and Sackville Gardens with its Alan Turing memorial, ornamental spots like Marie Louise Gardens in Didsbury and St Mary’s Park in Prestwich, and wide open spaces like the ees in the south and the cloughs in the north.
Here are our favourite Parks and gardens in Manchester.
