Walking in Trafford

These free downloadable resources highlight self-guided walks around a number of green spaces across the borough from Sale Water Park to Sinderland Brook.

Walking through fields

The ten walking guides have been produced in partnership with City of Trees, Transport for Greater Manchester and Trafford Strategic Sport & Physical Activity Partnership, with the aim of encouraging local residents to get active and explore the green space on their doorstep.

Trafford is home to 30 municipal parks, and a diverse range of historic open spaces and visitor attractions. The borough has a rich history and heritage of parks and green space, and was at the forefront of the Victorian parks movement, which established the pattern of public green space we know today.

The guides outline over 35 miles of recreational routes taking in local gems such as Sale Water Park, Walkden Gardens, Carrington Moss, Dainewell Park, Worthington Park, Turn Moss and more.

In addition to the guides, The City of Trees team runs regular weekly walks across the borough including monthly bee spotting, evening bat walks as well as themed events. Find out more on our events calendar.
