Time Out says
A huge park - the biggest municipal one in Europe no less - which also plays host to major events like the Parklife music festival.
What's there? Well, tt has a Grade I listed, 18th-century country house called Heaton Hall, an 18-hole golf course with driving range, a lovely boating lake, an animal farm, woodlands, ornamental gardens, an observatory, two playgrounds, a Papal monument and a volunteer-run tram system, restaurant and lakeside tea room, making it a perfect place for a stroll with the family or the dog or with just by yourself should you so wish.
|Opening hours:||The park opens daily at 8am and all park gates are locked by dusk. Venues within the park have different opening times so check the website.|
