If you are looking for the prefect day out with kids in Wigan, Manchester, look no further. With so much to see and do, Haigh Woodland Park is the perfect place for a family day out to suit all tastes.
Haigh Woodland Park is one of the north west’s most treasured natural attractions, where you can go on the hunt for wildlife in the woodland and go on the hunt for mini beasts. Perhaps you just want a relaxing family stroll? The Walker garden is a must if you are looking for peace and tranquility in these walled gardens, away from the hustle and bustle of modern day life.
Maybe you want something a little bit more action packed? No problem. Families can check out the Adventure Play zone consisting of swings, climbing frames, rope bridges and seesaws. There is also a mini zipwire, rope bridge, climbing frames and even an electronic game to help your switched-on kids bridge the gap between digital and real-life fun!
Haigh High Ropes is the north west’s favourite family aerial adventure for all the family. You will be fully trained up starting on the low ropes course before taking on the heights and challenges of the more adventurous courses. A great option for daredevils!
Want to keep your feet on the ground? Why not try 18 holes in Adventure Golf? Challenges include overcoming the oak tree stump vortex and a trip to the Viking boat. Perhaps you would rather kick a ball about. In that case, why not test your skills in Foot golf? For a very cost effective golfing experience, families can enjoy a little Crazy golf for a mere £1 per person.
One of the highlights here is the Railways of Haigh where families will get ‘all aboard’ as steam and diesel engines can take you on a tour of the woodland on this third of a mile long track. The railway is maintained thanks to donations received from the public. The locomotive fun doesn’t stop there. For £1 per ride you can also visit the miniature gauge railway which will take you on a ride alongside the woodland paths and even a small lake.
The Kitchen Courtyard is the perfect place for a bite to eat with food and drink producers including a bakery, chocolatier, ice cream parlour and café. Picnics are also welcome.
