Buile Hill Park
L.S. Lowry used to be a regular visitor to Buile Hill Park, and Frances Hodgson Burnett is thought to have written The Secret Garden here. So it’s no wonder it’s included on English Heritage’s Register of Parks and Gardens of Special Historic Interest in England.
Other reasons to visit include tennis courts, outdoor gym equipment, a play area, a sensory garden and a tree trail – and the fact that it’s Salford’s biggest park.
It’s known for hosting an annual free firework display, plus fun fairs and concerts. Buile Hill Park Hall holds Christmas party nights and New Year’s Eve celebrations, and you can hire it for private events.
