Also known 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!

My children love this park, especially on a Sunday when the trains are running. Nice size play areas ... and I like that the baby park is separate from the bigger kids park. Great grassy area for ball games, picnics and dog walking.
Great park, discussing members

This park was great, massive grassy area for picnics, playing and dogs etc. Parks were clean and segregated so younger children could play without being knocked over and older kids have freedom in their area. Just 30p for a train ride round the entire park great value for money. My only complaint would have been the over flowing bin. However I still would have given 5 stars if it wasn’t for a lady approaching the men, she politely asked if she could possibly use the toilet as she was desperate and pregnant to which the men refused as it was for “members only” and told her to go to a pub down the road. I could not believe what I’d just witnessed, not sure what they are members of but the miserable old men should all be ashamed, I’m literally disgusted, the lady would not let me say anything to them at the time but I’d like to make everybody aware of this. So in summary park, trains really really good. “Members” miserable and should be ashamed, pretty sure this can be classed as discrimination, however if not I think some people really need to assess themselves. Suggestion- build toilets
