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!

Everyone is invited to our 2018 AGM in the Upstairs Room at The Moorside Hotel, 131 Marsland Road, Sale at 7.30pm on Wednesday 27 June.
In addition to hearing reports and electing the Committee, there will be an interesting talk by Steve Wright, a member of the Japanese Garden and Society and a familiar person to most of you. It promises to be a good evening, though, so make a note of it come and have a glass of wine (or soft drink) with us.
The Friends Group would like to thank Green Vision Garden Design for their donation of turf. The Friends Group will make good use of this in the Gardens!
Volunteer workdays are held on the last Saturday of each month (except December).
The next workday is on Saturday 26 May 2018 starting at 10am and finishing no later than 1pm, with a break at half-time for tea/coffee and a bite to eat!
Go to the Projects page for some information about the work done by the volunteers.
