Wythenshawe Community Farm


disabled access

Admission is free. The gardens are open daily and the Glasshouses vary seasonally and during maintenance periods.

The Horticultural centre was originally built to provide plants for use by Manchester City Council throughout the city. When production stopped at the facility the numerous greenhouses were converted into display houses, and several themed gardens and habitats were created to provide environmental education and fun for the people of Manchester.

The numerous permanent displays include the Safari Walk which features tropical plants such as banana, pineapple, tea, coffee and rice, interspersed with ornamental subjects, water features and an aviary and alpine garden and display of cacti.

The outdoor area is home to numerous gardens featuring heather, shrubs, herbs, trees, herbaceous borders, alpines and fruit set in a pleasant and relaxing habitat.

Times and prices are subject to change. Contact venue before setting out.
