Orrell Water Park

1 miles (1.8 km)

This park in the Orrell area of Greater Manchester includes two pretty reservoirs surrounded by attractive woodland and a buttercup meadow. There's nice easy footpaths to follow around the water with lots of wildlife to look out for on the way.
To extend the walk head south towards Longshaw to climb Billinge Hill. The hill is the highest point on Merseyside and only about a mile or so from the park. From the summit there's great views towards Great Orme in Wales, Blackpool tower, Greater Manchester, Winter Hill and the DerbyshirePeak District.
You could also pick up the Leeds and Liverpool Canal and enjoy an easy towpath stroll on our Wigan Canal Walk. The park is located only a few miles west of Wigan and the canal.
