Abbotsfield Park Miniature Railway
Also know locally as 'Chassen Park', Abbotsfield Park is especially worth visiting on a Sunday when the Urmston and District Railway Society operate a charming miniature train around the park! Ideal for trainspotters of any age.
As well as a wealth of wide open green space to play traditional family games in, the park also offers both under 5s and over 5s adventure play areas with heaps of sturdy multi use outdoor equipment, plus formal tennis courts and bowling green too, so even with a mixed bag of age ranges there's something to occupy you all here somewhere, especially if you pack up the bats, balls and kites.
The park also plays host to a number of events throughout the year suitable for families including the annual May Day Steam Rally, the Mayor's Bonfire and Silcock's Fair, so be sure to check ahead when you're planning a visit, see if you can bag yourselves some extra fun!
