Oasis on the edge of town

I think we are lucky that we have such a place as Queens Park in Bolton. Set right on the edge of town it is an oasis of calm and serenity. There is lots of free parking around... read more

We used to come here all the time when I was young, and last week, I went back for the first time in possibly 50 years. They've spent a fair amount of Lottery Funding in smartening the place up: the best bits are as good as I remembered them, and the new sections are very well done. On a sunny... More

Visited Bolton for a weekend and went for an early morning run through Queens park. on a Saturday morning. I was one of 3 people in the whole park. The place was immaculately clean (which cannot be said for many other public places in Bolton.) The swans are beautiful and the children's area looks wonderful. I read some reviews about... More

A great open space with a good children's park, a little hilly from the car park end but well worth the climb if you are reasonably fit. If not you can still stroll at the bottom end of the park and get a welcome cuppa at the cafe which has toilets and a covered area to sit with your dog.

Queen's park is lovely at all times of the year with an excellent children's playgound and cafe. There are river walks which are especially attractive in the springtime when the celandines, wild garlic and bluebells are in bloom. But as for the rest of the park it's a bit hilly but lovely if you don't mind a bit of a... More

Step back in time, walk in the footsteps of the past, park for free and be safe, no charge for the visit apart from your general feeling of well being. No matter the season a great Park
