If you’re in search of some green space and outdoor experience, then Treetop Manchester should be top of your list for a day out this Spring with two unforgettable woodland adventures in the high trees, Treetop Trek and Treetop Nets. The huge new site is nestled in the ancient woodland of Manchester’s Heaton Park, just 5 miles from Manchester City Centre.

Treetop Trek is a high ropes course where fearless adventurers can explore the high trees on the super ZipTrek across 35 breath-taking aerial challenges, including 15 thrilling zip lines. Wearing a harness, you will weave your way through the tree canopy on wobbly logs, balance bars and Indiana bridges and fly through the air on zip lines. The ZipTrek is suitable from ages 7+ or you can find your head for heights with the shorter Mini Trek, which is suitable from ages 5+ with adult supervision.

Treetop Nets is a collection of giant bouncy nets, tunnels and slides, suspended high in the trees. In these huge treetop trampolines, you can go wild beneath the tree canopy and explore the treetops via bouncy tunnels and play in giant aerial ball parks. You can grab a sack and zoom down a super-fast slide or clamber up to the high crow’s nest and enjoy a view usually reserved for squirrels and bats. It’s an amazing way to enjoy the outdoors and be active - walking on the nets really gets those legs working!

Unlike traditional high ropes courses, you will be completely surrounded by high walls of netting, meaning you are safe to explore the trees without a harness. Anyone from age 3 upwards can take part. All you need is to dress for the weather (they are open rain or shine) and wear suitable footwear – please note, they don’t allow open toe shoes.

This super woodland attraction combines adventure, play and the great outdoors for a perfect day out that will be talked about for a long time afterwards. It’s a uniquely fun way for families to get close to nature and be active together.

If you fancy making a day of it, Heaton Park has plenty to offer - This giant park is actually one of Europe’s biggest municipal parks with over 600 acres to explore and is home to a Tramway Museum, a Grade 1 Listed Hall, a boating lake and numerous monuments, including the colonnade from Manchester’s first town hall. There are cafes and plenty of lovely spots for a picnic.

You can find Treetop Manchester via Heaton Park’s St Margaret’s Road entrance, M25 2GT if travelling by car, or it’s a 15 minute walk from Heaton Park Metrolink stop on Bury Old Road. For more information and to book, please visit www.treetoptrek.co.uk or www.treetopnets.co.uk or call 015394 47186. Open daily and pre-booking is recommended during school holidays. If you visit during the Easter holidays, there’ll be a Treetop Easter Egg trail where children can hunt for eggs hidden in the nets and high trees.
