Philips Park offers 31 acres of parkland on the doorstep of Sportcity and was awarded Green Flag status by the Civic Trust in 2005.
Located in the heart of east Manchester and within the Medlock Valley, it provides a unique mix of woodland, wild grassland, water and rolling hills. The park’s other facilities include a Visitor Centre, park warden service, toilets, children’s play area, hard standing ball court, junior football pitch, allotments, community orchard, bowling green and pavilion, a show-field for events, picnic area, seating and quiet areas along with a pond and dipping platform.
The park has a thriving friends group who, alongside the wardens, help organise environmental and educational activities as well as health walks.
Philips Park is well used by the local community and visitors to the area, and is particularly popular for annual events such as Party in the Park, which takes place in the summer as well as hosting one of Manchester’s biggest fee firework display in November.
The park is easily accessed by car, on foot or via the cycle paths.
