Fairy Tale Trail at Clifton Country Park

by Lydia (follow)
A new magical fairy tale trail

Clifton Country Park lies beside the River Irwell and has acres of open woodland and meadows.The park itself has a lakeside walk which features a fairy tale sculpture trail. The trail is a mile long and takes about an hour to walk round, which is perfect for little legs.



There are ten sculptures in total and they include an eagle, a fox, a bear and an owl. The trail ends with a gruffalo inspired sculpture which my little girl loved. They were created by Cheshire based chain saw artist Mike Burgess and installed by Salford City Council workers and Salford Volunteer Rangers. The sculptures were funded by pushing up recycling rates in the local community.





There is also a playground at the beginning of the trail and the car parking is free so it makes a great free day out if you are feeling the pinch in the New Year. They also have events and activities throughout the year led by the park rangers. Information about these can be found here.
