About the park

View location map, opening times and more

This beautiful park is set in 109 hectares of open parkland in South Manchester, with historic and ornamental woodlands, herbaceous borders, formal bedding, open grassland and beautiful wildflower meadows. It's grounds have certainly proved to be beautiful over the past few years. They were awarded a Green Flag Award in 2011 and 2012 - the national standard for parks and green spaces.

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 Hall open days and other seasonal celebrations including the Wythenshawe Games.

The park is easy to access by car or public transport and there's plenty of parking on site. There are also a full range of facilities to assist disabled visitors.

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 either end of 2019 or early 2020, The Friends of Wythenshawe Hall are actively working to support the project.
