Witton Park is a large recreation park with plenty of amenities, and is fortunate to have the Weaver's Way footpath starting in the park as well. This means that dog walkers get the advantage of both a good, long walk as well as a pot of tea and clean loos.
Free parking, car park gated. WCs, visitor centre, café, children's playground, dog poo bins. Pony and trap rides for spontaneously romantic moments. This walk is also really close to the M65.
Choice of walks, including a 6 mile circular. The walks are interesting, and each one is named after a key trade in the cotton industry - which used to be one of the main activities of the area. There is also an easy access path on tarmac, and suitable for all wheelchair types. This starts just behind the visitor centre, which is reached on a tarmac track from the car park. The Weaver's Way is a sequence of walks which combine to form a 32 mile long distance path. Each section of the Way is named after jobs in the cotton industry, such as the Warpers, Beamers and Tacklers. It's the Beamers trail that starts in the park with a full length of 6 miles for the full circular walk. The trail is easy to follow, and leaflets are available from the visitor centre.

Easy flat walks through the park.
Another firm favourite for walking our three dogs. You can keep to the flat, tarmacced paths or head up the hills where it is generally quieter. The path along the river leads to a couple of large areas where the dogs can really run and stretch their legs.
