Covering an area of over 600 acres, Heaton Park is set in the grounds of a Grade I listed, neoclassical 18th century country house, Heaton Hall.

The hall, remodelled by James Wyatt in 1772, is open to the public on select days, with other attractions including the animal farm open all year round. The park also contains an 18-hole golf course, a boating lake, a pitch and putt course, a golf driving range, woodlands, ornamental gardens, an observatory, an adventure playground, a Papal monument and a volunteer-run tram system and museum, and is listed Grade II by Historic England.

It has the only flat green bowling greens in Manchester, built for the 2002 Commonwealth Games.
