The space itself is nothing exceptional: worn out fields, old playgrounds and a decent lake. But for many South Mancs this park is full of happy memories: playing with friends, picnics, BBQs... This is a space best enjoyed with friends and loved ones.

Had a nice stroll and a lung full of fresh air here yesterday. A nice spot in a busy city centre and will definitely visit again. Especially loved walking round the boating lake.

ok, so lots of water means lots of critters so bug spray is a must. but it also means lots of ducks and these don't disappoint. geese and swans galore. great for picnics in summer. and firework displays in winter.

Now clearly everyone knows what a park consists of: trees, grass, maybe a playground, pond etc. Plattfields has all of this as well as a hill behind the pond. If you are trying to get away from fallowfield and pretend you're in the countryside, plattfields...More
