Explore Drinkwater Park

Situated in Greater Manchester, Drinkwater Park is home to a diverse mix of native woodland, open meadows and borders the River Irwell. It is connected by a superb network of paths making it the perfect location for a leisurely stroll, blood-pumping run or if you just want to escape the hustle and bustle of the city. 

Formerly home to Irwell House, a Georgian mansion that was later turned into an isolation hospital, the park is full of a rich history. Keep your eyes peeled for part of the mansions foundations that can still be seen today! 

The National Cycle Network 6 and the Irwell Sculpture Trail also run through the site.
