What a beautiful hidden spot. Lovely all year round. My particular favourite is the Japanese Garden. The Wisteria Arch is my favourite seasonal thing to visit.

One of the best kept secrets of Sale and a quiet park for you to get lost in. Ideal for an hour and dogs must be kept on leads.

We love walking around the mase. Perfect for running, walking and enjoying all the beautiful mini gardens. Have taken some lovely photos of my children in here.

Beautiful place to relax and decompress and enjoy nature, particularly over the summer. The Japanese garden is most impressive, really kept clean and up to date. First time in Sale but not last, quite a gorgeous area.

Walden gardens are a lovely place with a great border and excellent Japanese garden. Wysteria archway is a dream and lavender garden a treat.
