Walkden Gardens

Walkden Gardens are a public green space owned by Trafford Council. The Friends of Walkden Gardens work with the Council, and their contractor Amey, to maintain and improve the Gardens.

The Gardens are open every day and entrance is FREE OF CHARGE except on a few occasions when there are musical or theatrical performances taking place.

We regret that, except when there are theatrical events, there are no toilet facilities on site.

Please note that, as the Gardens are a public open space, they cannot normally be hired for private events.

The gates are normally opened at about 9.00am (sometimes earlier) and are officially closed at 4.30pm in Winter and 7.00pm in Summer. Please don’t risk getting locked in! Also, please check the onsite noticeboard as they may sometimes close earlier!

Please Donate

This year the Friends Group have been unable to hold most of  their fund raising events.
If you have enjoyed the Gardens and would be prepared to make a small donation via our GoFundMe page, it would be very much appreciated. To donate, just click on our logo opposite.

Carols Event Cancelled

We regret that because of the continuing CORVID-19 problem the usual “Carols Around the Dovecote” event has had to be cancelled for 2020.
Let’s hope that by December 2021 things will be back to normal!
