Mersey Vale Nature Park

1. Overview

There is plenty to do and see at Mersey Vale Nature Park. You can discover wildlife, enjoy a picnic, walk, cycle or horse ride on the many paths and trails.

Mersey Vale Nature Park has grown from the rubble of a derelict bleach-works and railway sidings. The river Mersey forms the backbone of the Park. The coast to coast Transpennine Trail runs through the centre of the park.

Thousands of tonnes of soil were used to create the park’s open space. Wildflowers were sown and new trees planted. Over time these spaces will create nature rich habitats. These can be enjoyed by people and wildlife for many years to come.
