NCHS – Winter Tree Wander

The Natural and Cultural Health Service (NCHS) is a programme of outdoor activities that promote good physical and mental wellbeing ran in collaboration with Whitworth Park.

At first glance, many trees can appear identical in Winter. Without any leaves, flowers, or colour, how can we tell each species apart? It might seem an impossible task – but join City of Trees and together we’ll uncover the secrets of winter tree identification!

Starting with a mini-workshop on the foundations of tree identification, we’ll head out together for a gentle stroll around Whitworth Park, stopping to identify and chat about the species we find. Everyone is welcome regardless of your previous tree knowledge as this is a friendly session aimed at absolute beginners.

Please remember to wrap up warm and make sure you wear appropriate footwear for being outside.

Please meet by our Parkside reception desk, which looks out at the gallery’s Art Garden. If you are arriving through the Park, the gallery’s Parkside entrance is positioned at the rear of the gallery and is accessed via the park gate off Denmark Road, M15 6FG

Transport information
There is limited parking around Whitworth Park with a small amount of street parking along the park boundaries. There is a very small private car park on Acomb Street, M15 6FQ called Greenheys Community Car Park which can be used.

There is a bus stop on Oxford Road immediately beside Whitworth Park with multiple services running throughout the day. The nearest train station is Oxford Road Station, which is approximately a 24-minute walk from the Park.
