Called into daisy Nook for a casual walk with the dog. Nice coffee hut with piping hot drinks. Pleasant staff nice to say hello to some walkers and a chat with some horse riders. Nice walk around the crime lake with ample bird life .

Went here with the wife and kids. A nice gentle stroll tipped off with a nice drink and a sandwich. Things to keep the kids interested and happy. A nice relaxing stroll without any major climbs to worry about. Nice and peaceful too

This is a lovely park which was near our hotel and family. So peaceful in the heart of Manchester. Had a lovely time feeding the ducks. We walked through a couple of times and it was lovely.

Daisy nook is local to us, can be muddy so don't go in your finest. Grate place to walk dogs, has a park for kids, and a cafe. You can spend 30minuets or 3 hours walking round the different paths.

Had a great time today, lots of walking and lovely animals/wildlife to see! Downside is there is not enough signposts to tell you where to go. It would be good to have machines with duck food in to get but had a great time
