Walk description:

Stroll through splendid woodlands carpeted with bluebells in the springtime, or relax under the shade of the lime avenues. Wander along the mere with splendid views over the water to the church at Great Budworth, or explore the arboretum and community orchard. Children will enjoy the play area, close to the picnic area.

There is a well-surfaced network of paths around the park. Many of these, particularly around the more formal areas of the park, are suitable for prams and wheelchairs. There are also plenty of seats along the way.

Park at the main car park just inside the park and head out along the main footpath down to Budworth Mere. Follow the path around to the right all along the mere and into the area called 'Big Wood'. This takes you up to the edge of the Trent & Mersey Canal. You can then continue either around the perimeter of the park, or take one of the paths through the middle back to the car park

Additional notes:

Parking is about £1.80 for 3 hours. A more detailed map is available free of charge at the information kiosk.
