I’ve never been here before but went today as part of my daily exercise and what a stunning place. There’s so much to see from the woodland walk, the River Mersey to the amazing rock garden which has to be seen. I will definitely be visiting again when the lockdown is over with friends.

Sackville Gardens

A small park in the heart of the gay village, which features memorials and space to reflect. We host regular events, including Manchester Pride. The daily free tour of Manchester starts here every day at 11am, by the Alan Turing Memorial. The park is maintained by the 'Friends of Sackville Gardens'

Reviewed By David0ff82 - Liverpool, United Kingdom

Often visit here when in Manchester and the gay village with my partner. During pride they have acts on and food stalls and a bar. During pride August 2019 we saw a few acts including LuLu and the women from Liberty X, such a good atmosphere. The park also has a Memorial statue of Alan Turing, a memorial for victims of HIV and a carved memorial for transgender people who have lost their lives. When there are no events it’s a nice peaceful space!
