Close Park is a public park of around 11.19 hectares. It is located approximately 3 miles from Bury town centre and 1 mile from Radcliffe town centre. The park has a bowling green, football pitches, outdoor gym equipment, children's play area and tennis courts. The park is home to several sculptures created through a joint project with local schools and sculptor Mark Jalland. Nearby is St Mary's Parish Church and Radcliffe Tower. The park is fairly level throughout with well-maintained footways and is, therefore, accessible to people with disabilities and families with push-chairs. Access to Close Park is via the main entrance on Dumers Lane, next to St Mary's Parish Church or via alternative entrances on Parkside Close and from the River Irwell which run behind the playing fields.
