Love Parks Week 2023 – visit the park, by train

Here in High Peak and Hope Valley, we’re spoiled for choice with lovely parks to visit. Here are just a few of the parks you can easily visit by train this Love Parks Week:

Howard Park and Manor Park, Glossop

These beautiful Victorian parks are a great place to take the family. Manor Park has plenty of facilites including a cafe, toilets, miniature railway, skate park and sensory garden. Howard Park is home to Glossop’s swimming pool and formal landscaping.

Buxton Pavilion Gardens

A lovely green space in Buxton town centre, the Gardens are perfect for picnics and exploring the Pavilion surroundings such as the Conservatory and Opera House. Enjoy the miniature railway, water features, boating lake and play equipment.

New Mills Viaduct

Torrs Riverside Park, New Mills

This has to be one of the most unusual and distinctive parks in the Peak District! Set in the remains of New Mills’ industrial heritage, this park has an “Alice in Wonderland” feel as you gaze up high to the viaduct and Torr Vale Mills, then climb the steep footpaths to look down on the river and gorge from the town above. 

Hathersage playground and MUGA

The park is adjacent to Hathersage Outdoor Swimming Pool and Multi Use Games area, with play equipment for young children and the Pool Cafe just next door. You can also look up to sweeping views of Stanage Edge and Millstone Edge.
