Boggart Hole Clough, classified as an Ancient Woodland, is steeped in history and combines a number of picturesque cloughs varying from steep ravines to gentle sloping gullies.
The park is an attractive haven for relaxation but also boasts a number of activities, from boating to athletics, and is well worth a visit. The park stages a number of cross-country events, mountain bike rides, summer Fundays and an annual bonfire and firework display.
The park was recently cleaned up by members of Festival Manchester, including painting knee rails, litter picking in the dells and around the lake, and planting of bulbs around the public car park on Charlestown Road.
In 2008, Boggart Hole Clough attained the Green Flag Award for the 8th year running.
The Park also has a very proactive 'Friends' group; the Boggart Hole Clough Community Action Trust (external link: http://www.boggart.org.uk/ ) To contact the group or find out how to join please use the link above.
