What is Heaton Park about?
Over the past 200 years many people have left their stamp on the Heaton Park Estate. Walk around the historic core to look at landscape and buildings and discover connections between the park’s past and present.
The Wardens will take you on a gentle walk through the park’s varying landscape to observe the variety of plants, birds, mammals, and minibeasts that make it their home.
The Farm and Animal Centre has a splendid collection of livestock and knowledgeable staff who care for them. The Wardens and livestock team will introduce the animals and talk about their life-cycles, care and seasonal husbandry. An opportunity for you to get a close up behind–the-scenes look at farm and pet animals.
