Peel Park, The Crescent, Salford, M5 4PD – Visit Now

Peel Park was a favourite spot of LS Lowry appearing as the focus of more than a few of his sketches & paintings. Like most public parks it’s had years of decline but the Chapel Street area is now undergoing refurbishment and the park has been bestowed £1.6 million by the Heritage Lottery fund. A permanent Park Keeper has even been employed to keep the surroundings looking great.

Peel Park was put back on the map of the art world a few years ago by American photographer Spencer Tunick when he dropped off a busload of naked volunteers and snapped them alongside the old rosebeds. For more culture while you’re here, visit Salford Museum & Art Gallery and the Working Class Movement Library that overlook the park.
