Chorlton Water Park is a Local Nature Reserve. It is also a holder of the Civic Trust's Green Flag Award which recognises the high standard of environmental value and community involvement, and also the UK Man and the Biosphere Urban Wildlife Award for Excellence.
At Chorlton Water Park, you can follow one of 5 Health Walks in the Mersey Valley. Follow the signs, which will take you on a circular route around the lake of about a mile in length. The well-surfaced paths are accessible to wheelchairs and push chairs; and there are no unexpected steep hills. You will find benches situated at intervals along the route should you need to rest a while, or you just want to sit and enjoy the countryside.
