Clifton Country Park


Situated in the Irwell Valley, Clifton Country Park is 48 hectares of beautiful countryside in the heart of the city.

Here you can explore acres of open woodland and meadows, enjoy lakeside walks, bring a picnic, go fishing or discover the hidden remnants of the city's industrial past.

The park was designated a local nature reserve in 2005 and currently holds the prestigious Green Flag award.

Clifton is also home to the industrial remains of the Wet Earth Colliery. Established around 1740, the colliery was one of the first deep mines to be sunk in the Irwell Valley.
As well as self-guided trails, the Salford Ranger Team provides a wide range of events and activities and volunteering opportunities throughout the year.
