Heaton Park is a municipal park in Manchester, England, covering an area of over 600 acres (242.8 ha). The park includes the grounds of a Grade I listed, neoclassical 18th century country house, Heaton Hall. The hall, remodelled by James Wyatt in 1772, is now only open to the public on an occasional basis as a museum and events venue.
Heaton Park was sold to Manchester City Council in 1902 by the Earl of Wilton. It has one of the United Kingdom's few concrete towers, the Heaton Park BT Tower.

Apparently so I’m told the biggest municipal public park in Western Europe! Great place to spend a day we used to go feed the squirrels till my daughter got bitten and spent the afternoon in casualty! Parking is a hot topic as there’s nowhere to park for free unless you clog up the side streets and piss the residents off! Apart from that all good!

This park is amazing for young families, dog walkers, joggers, bike riding, duck feeders and relaxing. Over the past few years it has been kicked into the 21st century. Although that does come at a price. You now have to pay to park in there which makes cheap Audi drivers park all over the surround streets! For the best experience go first thing in the morning just as it's open, doesn't matter what season.

Stunning park, massive too. Can easily spend all day here. Plenty to see and do, including the boating lake, the animal corner, golf, the stables and the cafe! During the summer there are generally faires to spend some time on, and the treetop ropes to have a go on! I thoroughly enjoyed my day here.

Spent the day with my team for work planting trees. Heaton Park is beautiful place to come with family and friends to experience lovely surgery and good for walks. There is local cafe within the grounds and also animals to see. The park is vast and easily covers a couple of miles to walk around and is good for morning walks but also to jog. A lovely and nice place to take kids.

Beautiful well kept park, lots of wildlife, animals and has a kids section with swings, climbing frames etc. The park also boasts a farm area with piglets, goats, alpacas amongst others. There are also w/cs near the cafe (with reasonably-priced food and refreshments). The only thing I don't like is the planned parking charges; the signs are up, but covered for now. This will surely discourage many families from taken their children to enjoy this lovely park!

The boating lake is great in nice sunny weather. £8.50 for 45 minutes up to 4 people is also really reasonable. Next to a little pub for anyone who doesn't fancy the boat. Great place for families or couples.

The hidden gem cafe in the garden centre is a nice quiet corner to chat and relax. Plenty of outside seating when weather permits. What appear to be home made cakes. My husband had a scone which he thoroughly enjoyed. Reasonable amount of indoor seating and very friendly helpful smiling staff.

Great day out for all. Land train and trams running. Plenty of places to get refreshments. Hall being renovated and looking good. A couple of fun fairs running. A new park area. The little farm needs uplifting. Well cared for animals with lots of room, but not much to see. Has been better in the past.

Great place to go bike riding running go for a walk with your dog or dogs if you like gardening there's a garden centre cheap prices. If you like golf there's a big 18 hole golf course and a boating lake go take your love one on the water or kids,plenty of field to play football or have a picnic and there are animals to take your kids to see and horses. There's also a big play ground for the kids, so there's plenty to do if you have the weather.

Our local park and one of the largest municipal parks in Europe. Loads of things to do, and lots of concerts, festivals and clubs use it as a venue. Come a long way since I was a kid. If you're visiting Manchester, we'll worth a visit. DO Not agree with the parking charges though. 4 stars.

Nice weather? No better place to come if you want to stay local and enjoy mother nature. Few ice cream vans around, nice lake/pound, plenty of tree and bushes, lots of parking spaces. Soo enjoyable place to go for a walk or do picnic. Love it!

A large lovely park, great for a walk, picnics etc. It has ponds/ small lake. There's even a quaint old fashioned tram running through. There's a small cafe too.
