Daisy Nook is a country park with woodland, canals, river, picnic sites, bird watching, orienteering and fishing.
Families can have a fun-packed day in the countryside with two fantastic play areas set amongst 40 hectares of woodlands, meadows, waterways and a lake.
Tots Lock - a narrow boat play feature with sand play areas aimed at under 5’s - reflecting the area’s industrial past, and the adventure playscape (designed for 6- 14 yr olds) with a wetland nature area, log balances, scrambling boulders, cradle swing, rock hill fort and banking slide entrance.
Visitors can also enjoy a stroll along the wheel/push-chair accessible canal towpath, fishing at one of the three angling ponds (day tickets available), a permanent orienteering course (recently updated) and the footpaths and bridleways that link to surrounding countryside and Park Bridge Heritage Centre.
New facilities in 2011 included a larger Café with a seating area and a visitor information point, (open 9am – 4pm weekdays, and 9am - 5pm weekends) alongside the free car park and toilets (disabled access).
Daisy Nook offers two enviromental clubs for children. The Oak Club for those aged 8 - 11 yrs and the Little Seedling for pre-schoolers and children up to the age of 7. Children under 8 must be accompanied by an adult.
