This is a local gem, mixture of modern attractions and woodland with plenty to keep most people occupied. Interesting assortment of refreshment outlets in old courtyard. Parking charge is very reasonable. Can get busy but just keep walking away from the car park to find peace and quiet.

there is a number of things to do there, for one the walk is really good and the crazy golf was really good as there was so many holes you could put the ball in .however the footie golf was not open and the parking was a pain also the train took far to long to get to us

Haven't been to Haigh Woodland park in about 4 years. The change is astonishing. It has had lots of investment and is now a great family place to visit.

The new play area was bustling with young families. Whilst some building work was still very much in progress... More
