Reviews of Burrs Country Park in Bury
Burrs Country Park venue information
Burrs Country Park lies on the River Irwell covering an area of 36 hectares of scenic countryside, one mile north of Bury town centre.
Burrs features a wide variety of different wildlife habitats - woodland, openspace, wetland, ponds and waterways. The park is a great place to visit, an ideal spot for a range of activities including walking and runing, canoeing and kayaking, fishing, bird watching and nature study as well as picnicing.
Burrs Country Park has been awarded a "Much Loved" certificate in the UK's Best Park Competition 2019. Burrs was placed in the top 20% of parks nationwide and in the Top Ten parks in the Northwest.
The park owes part of its existence to Bury's industrial past, many remnants of which still exist today.
The East Lancs Railway runs through the park between Heywood and Rawtenstall through Bury with trains stopping at the Burrs Country Park Halt.
The Irwell SculpureTrail also runs through the park and there are four sculptures within the park.
The Lamppost Café opened in June 2018 is dog friendly and serves tasty food and exellent coffee.
The Brown Cow pub located in the grounds of the park is one of the oldest pubs in Bury opening in 1752.
The Caravan and Motorhome Club has a site within the park offering all types of pitches in scenic surroundings.
Burrs Country Park has retained a Green Flag Award since 2005. The national Green Flag Award scheme recognises excellence in greenspace management and measures criteria such as cleanliness, maintenance, sustainability, community involvement, heritage, nature conservation, health, safety, security and overall management.
