Stamford Park was initially created to offer the working class a tranquil space to take exercise. It was donated to the people of Altrincham in 1979 and is a well maintained area thanks to friends of Stamford Park.
The park boasts excellent play facilities. There are two shaded play areas at the Charter Road end of the park. Both have seating for accompanying adults. In the larger area which is fully enclosed, there is a variety of equipment including a large wooden climbing trail, a metal slide, a roundabout and a multi-unit for smaller children. There is also an old paddling pool which is generally used by children on skateboards, scooters and rollerblades. In the play area adjacent to the Counselling and Family Centre, equipment is more suitable for the under fives, with swings, slide and climbing frame.
There are a range of sports facilities for families to enjoy; a 9-a side football pitch, two lawn bowls, tennis courts, the grassed oval for sports such as cricket, basketball court, cycling paths.
There is also a duck pond and a nature trail for the children to enjoy.
Dogs are welcome and picnics are permitted. Paths are suitable for access by wheelchair and pram users.
