Get back to nature at Bolton’s hidden gem, Haigh Woodland Park.

Wander through or cycle across 250 acres of woodland and park grounds and take in the stunning views of Douglas Valley and the Welsh Hills.

Get competitive with your partner, friends or family at the park’s crazy golf course, and for the pros there’s 9 and 18-hole golf courses. There’s also a free adventure playground for the kids and a mini railway families can ride to the park’s walled gardens.
