Highfield Country Park

What is Highfield Country Park?

Highfield Country Park is a 70-acre (280,000 m2) area of open land, situated on the east side of Levenshulme, Manchester, that stretches to the east of Broom Avenue across to the rear of Reddish Golf Course and to the junction of Longford Road, Reddish and Nelstrop Road, Levenshulme.

Much of Highfield Country Park is not manicured, nature has some freedom to take it's own course. Although it is does not seem too large, if you take one of the many small paths you may suddenly find yourself wondering whether you are still in Manchester... in much of it, you can only see the trees and long grass. The roads and buildings are often hidden from view.

If you want us to post your story on the park or publicise your event, please contact us, you can see the About page for contact info.
