It's lovely, lots of small sections to walk around in the old Sale botanical gardens. The Japanese garden is my personal favourite. My kids find lots of places to hide and there will be something there for everyone.

One of the best kept secrets of Sale and a quiet park for you to get lost in. Ideal for an hour and dogs must be kept on leads.

Beautiful place to relax and decompress and enjoy nature, particularly over the summer. The Japanese garden is most impressive, really kept clean and up to date. First time in Sale but not last, quite a gorgeous area.
