Perhaps the greatest virtue of The Carrs is the illusion of isolation it creates. Trees line the slopes of the Bollin Valley hiding the houses above and creating the illusion of nature extending far beyond the park’s real boundaries. Thus it provides one of the greatest gifts of a park to its urban users, that of relief from the built environment.
The playground is undoubtedly the most popular in Wilmslow, is well maintained and usually has an ice cream van in attendance as a reliable means of getting the children out of the playground and towards the car. There’s also a Skateboard and football park with basketball hoop, tennis courts, woodland walk, and a riverside walk. There are also picnic facilities.
Therefore for a fantastic free day out, look no further than the Carrs, Wilmslow.
