With a friend of mine we were staying in St Helens for a few days in February. We took the bus from nearby the hotel that we stayed at and went to see the Dream. It has been a nice day, sunny and we enjoyed very much the new experience of the Dream.

Nice walk but it still would be if the dream wasn't there! It's ok to look at but can be seen from the motorway. Wouldn't come to see it more than once as there is nothing there. Not good if you have children!

I visited this fabulous icon last year.. Luckily it wasn't raining as most of the long winding woodland walk is in the open but it's certainly worth it. Good walks for dogs and children love it. The icon makes you feel so small you when you stand next to it.

We walked the dogs around here, I really liked the dream statue. I was quite surprise by how much it captured me. The surrounding area is not so appealing but the Dream offers some beauty in area that needs some. The area used to be a colliery up until the 1960's. If you are passing it well worth a visit...

It really needs a clean! The dream is filthy dirty and needs cleaning to bring it back to white! Just another example of this councils lack of attention and care! Yes we have budget costs however this should be maintained if kept open for the public

Lovely place to go and relax, some good walks around the statue and a beautiful figure, shame about the litter.

I spent about 30 minutes getting to it, it was a gentle walk. It's not a crowded place and the "Dream" is quite something. I'd seen it first from passing by on the M62 Motorway and always promised myself a visit. I'm glad I did. best of all - It's FREE!!!.

I read many of the previous reviews before going to this park, and I was a bit worried that I would be disappointed. However, I quite enjoyed our walk here today. The paths are well laid, and the ascent to the sculpture yielded a nice surprise for my son who was expecting just a walk in the park. Though there... More

Not just an awe-inspiring sculpture but a peaceful area with great views. Lovely place to walk dogs.

Thought we'd go to Sutton Manor with the dogs for a Sunday walk, the big giant head is amazing however I've never seen so many poo bags strewn all over the place, thrown on the ground in trees & tied to trees and dog crap that people hadn't bothered bagging. If people were more responsible Sutton would be a really... More
