Reddish Vale Country Park

2 miles (3 km)

This 400 acre park lies just a couple of miles north of Stockport in the Tame Valley. The park contains a Visitor Centre, Community Orchard and Garden, Butterfly Conservation Field and a Dipping Pond. There are also peaceful woodland walks, a waterside path along the River Tame and two reservoirs which attract plenty of wildlife. For children there's a farm where you can pet and feed a variety of animals.
Both the Trans Pennine Trail and the Midshires Way run through the park.
You can follow both these trails on towards Stockport either on a bike or on foot. The park is conveniently located a short distance from Reddish South and Brinnington railway stations.
Just to the west you'll find Highfield Country Park in Levenshulme. There's more nice walking trails and a cycle track here.

Dog Walking

The park's woodland and river trails are ideal for dog walking so you'll probably see other owners on your visit.
