Excellent. A great experience for all the family especially the grandchildren. A great example of the legacy of the Job Creation Programme of the 1970s/1980s. Love it.

We went on bank holiday Monday, and it wasn't too busy. Lots of wildlife to see and feed. The children loved the den building area and spent the majority of their time there. The play area is brilliant as well.

Wow. I only popped in to feed the ducks! Can't believe how amazing this place is! It's huge! It's like a wildlife sanctuary, a mini zoo, a play park all rolled into one! Loved it. Can't wait to go again!

As others have mentioned, we are not served by a bus route. Probably the quickest way by train from Liverpool is to catch a train to Southport and then change to a train that goes to Burscough Bridge. It is about a 40 minute... More
