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 currently officially closed at 5.00pm. Please don’t risk getting locked in! Also , please check the onsite noticeboard as they may sometimes close earlier!

Carols Around the Dovecote

This year our famous “Carols around the Dovecote” event will be on Saturday 3 December 2016 from 12.30pm to approximately 4pm.

Come along for the carol singing, choirs, brass band, Father Christmas, stalls, and mulled wine and German beer and sausages.

The Friends Group will have a bottle tombola stall to raise funds to help the Gardens. If you can supply any sort of bottle (full!) as a prize, please bring to the volunteer workday or leave at 139 Norris Road, Sale.
