Sports, leisure & the Arts Wythenshawe Park

About the park

This beautiful park is set in 109 hectares of open parkland in South Manchester, with historic and woodlands, open grassland and meadows. It's grounds have certainly proved to be beautiful over the past few years.

The park is steeped in history and there are three Grade II Listed Buildings located within the park: North Lodge, the Statue of Oliver Cromwell and Wythenshawe Hall.

Its range of year-round leisure and educational opportunities for all ages includes a varied activities and events programme, with highlights such as the annual firework and bonfire extravaganza, the Wythenshawe Games and other seasonal celebrations.

The park is easy to access by car or public transport and there's plenty of parking on site.

Wythenshawe Hall was damaged significantly by an arson attack in March 2016, and as a result is closed to the public while a major repair, renovation and restoration project is undertaken. This is likely to take up to three years. The Hall will reopen in September 2019, The Friends of Wythenshawe Hall are actively working with the Council to support the project.
