What Else Can Be Seen At Phillips Park?

See the Children’s Play Area.  Phillips Park provides two play areas for young children.

•    The first is near to the Lodge on Stuart Street
•    The other on the Showfield.

These Play Areas are designed to meet the different needs of Toddlers and Juniors.

Manchester Leisure prides itself on creating play environments that are inclusive and offer multi-sensory experiences to help develop motor activity and encourage interactive and imaginative play, in a safe environment.

In the Play Areas, equipment is tested visually on a weekly basis and each month it is tested for technical use.  This ensures that all equipment is in good safe working order at all times.

What Is Inclusive Play?

This is all children playing together – irrespective of age, ability or ethnic background.

Therefore, children that are disabled can play safely in the Play Area alongside their able bodied friends.

Also, children have a natural need for adventure. To see if they can stretch themselves to their limits. In the Play Area – the equipment is meant to allow this in a safe environment.


If you have green fingers but no garden of your own, allotments may well be the answer.

What Are the Advantages of Having an Allotment?

•    You and the family can enjoy fresh food that you have grown yourself
•    No unknown pesticides are used on your vegetables
•    You will have a more healthy lifestyle with regular exercise
•    The opportunity to make new friends
•    The plots are accessible for disabled people.


The orchards are next to the allotments (opposite the Fairclough Street entrance), the Community Orchard was set up by the local residents to provide a source of fresh produce and shared enjoyment for the community.

The orchard has many apple trees.

The Community Orchard is open to everyone. For more information contact East Manchester Parks on 0161 223 8278.
