Mayfield Park

Mayfield Park

Manchester’s first city-centre public park will be ready to open its doors in the Autumn! The 6.5-acre Mayfield Park is located just next to Piccadilly Station and boasts adventure play areas, biodiverse ecological areas, open green spaces, and quieter spaces where you can easily escape the hustle and bustle of Manchester’s buzzing inner-city region.

The site also offers walking, running, and cycling routes, in addition to a section of the River Medlock, which was uncovered as part of the project. The park is part of a wider project to restore the 20-acre area of Mayfield into a vibrant neighbourhood, using the site’s industrial past to ‘guide’ and inspire the new developments. Historically, Mayfield was known for its textile factories, like much of central Manchester. However, it gained its name from the Mayflower: a wildflower that once grew in abundance in the area. We are excited that once again wildflowers will be plentiful in Mayfield!
