History: In 1921, Sir Thomas Rowbotham, a former Major of Stockport, presented to the town, Woodbank Memorial Park in honour of the Stockport men who died in the Great War. The park is 90 acres in extent, is beautifully wooded and, skirted by the river Goyt, presents striking natural views. The bluebells in the woods are a feature almost unequalled in any public park in the country. (Taken from the Stockport Official Guidebook 1949)

Disabled: The upper section of the park is mostly wheelchair accessible

Dogs: You must clean up after your dog – scoop bins provided. Dog restrictions exist in some areas of the park.
