Blackleach Country Park

A green haven at your doorstep, Blackleach Country Park is a mere half a mile from Walkden’s town centre.

Blackleach holds the renowned Green Flag designation and was formally recognised as a Local Nature Reserve (in 2004). This location is great for taking in the scenery, going fishing, feeding ducks, or just taking in the nature.

The property is easily accessible by bus or automobile from the A575, and connections to other rural areas may be established through the network of former railroad lines that have been transformed into secure, off-road walks and bicycle trails.

With the assistance of a passionate friend group, who together offer an engaging programme of activities and events, the Salford Ranger Team operates the location and tourist centre.

Schools and community organisations can use the website. Additionally, diverse outdoor education activities can be planned to suit various needs.
