Ho Ho Ho!! Santa gives Manchester an early Xmas present - its first official Country Park! PDF Print E-mail

Thursday 20 December 2012

Heaton Park has been declared as the Citys first formal Country Park after an application to Natural England was successfully approved. it recognises the high quality management and functionality of Heaton Park as a major visitor attraction and ecosystem, and is one of only 9 Country parks recognised by Natural England in the North West of England.

Councillor Rosa Battle, executive member for culture and leisure said:

"Achieving Country Park status is a real accolade for Heaton Park. We are committed to providing the highest quality facilities and services in the park so to receive this national recognition is a real coup. Our staff work tirelessly to make this green space suitable for the community, families, one off visitors and everyone that comes into the park. I would hope that our new found status may also lead to more people visiting the park and continuing to visit as they can be confident of the facilities they can expect to find."

This is fantastic news for Manchester, especially before Christmas.

Have a great festive season everyone!
