While not overly large in expanse, it nevertheless is a welcome green space. Good paths weave between the trees and through the grassways.

A number of monuments are to be seen. Prime is the one to the great scientist Alan Turing that has him sitting on a bench holding an apple in one hand.

Located in this beautiful park is the Beacon of Hope- a memorial to people living with HIV/ AIDS and those who have died from it.

Also located here is the Turing Statue - a beautiful reminder of an amazing man.

The park has a back drop of the Municipal College of Technology.

There are paths and garden beds add a feeling of serenity.

Nearly always pop here when in the gay village and came here to see the acts and use the bars and food vans during pride August 2021. Nice little park.

A cute little park with a tribute to Alan Turing and an installation celebrating the hope and trials of the LGBTQ+ community. Well tended and worth a walk through when exploring Manchester on foot.

An oasis of calm amid the hustle and bustle and tall buildings of Manchester city, The Beacon of Hope dedicated to HIV/AIDS victims is moving. There are benches and stone slabs to rest one's feet and reflect..... Alan Turing's statue on a bench (covered with flowers to mark his birthday in June) gazes serenely at the scene. At the time of our visit workers on their lunch break enjoyed a picnic in this small park.

Worth a visit.

Sackville Gardens is located in the centre of Manchester. It is a short walk from Manchester Piccadilly Railway Station and Canal Street.

It's not a massive open space but on a nice day it's a great place to go and sit down and relax, meet some friends or just enjoy the green space.

It's also the location of the Alan Turing statue so worth checking out if you are interested in the history of this man's life.

A beautiful tranquil park, just minutes from the busy station, Canal Street and city centre.
Tranquil yet with a quiet buzz of an atmosphere from the laughter, conversations and love in the air.
There’s a proud Bee at its centrepiece being watched over by the important British hero - Mr Alan Turing.

Often visit here when in Manchester and the gay village with my partner. During pride they have acts on and food stalls and a bar. During pride August 2019 we saw a few acts including LuLu and the women from Liberty X, such a good atmosphere. The park also has a Memorial statue of Alan Turing, a memorial for victims of HIV and a carved memorial for transgender people who have lost their lives. When there are no events it’s a nice peaceful space!
