Just half a mile north of Walkden town centre, Blackleach Country Park is a green haven right on your doorstep.
Officially designated as a Local Nature Reserve in 2004 and holder of the prestigious Green Flag award – Blackleach is an ideal place to enjoy the countryside, take a picnic, go fishing, feed the ducks or simply enjoy the local wildlife.
The site is easily accessible by car or bus from the A57 and links can be made with other countryside areas via the network of former railway lines which have been developed as safe, off-road footpaths and cycle routes.
The site and visitor centre are managed by the Salford Ranger Team with support from an active friends group who together provide an exciting programme of events and activities.
Schools and community groups are welcome to use the site and a range of outdoor education activities can be organised to suit different needs.
Times and prices are subject to change. Contact venue before setting out.
