Worsley Woods

Located in the picturesque village of Worsley, Worsley Woods offers a welcome break from the stresses of city life.

Occupying around 30 hectares of beautiful woodland, the site can be reached from Salford's network of looplines or the historical Bridgewater Canal.

As well as self-guided trails, the Salford Ranger team with support from an active friends group provide a wide range of exciting events and activities throughout the year including walks and talks, orienteering and a range of outdoor education activities.

There is also a brand new play and adventure trail, provided with support from Worsley Woods Action Group. Children can now enjoy a variety of activity trails that weave their way through the woodland. The equipment includes an accessible boat swing, monkey bars, climbing nets, wobble boards and parallel bars and the trails are suitable for both younger and older children.

The site also forms part of the Worsley Village Heritage Trail.

Please respect local residents and do not park on Woodstock Drive. Walk to the play trail or use parking by Beesley Green Community Centre on Greenleach Lane.
