This downloadable leaﬂet is one of a series that describes some easy walks around some of Oldham’s fantastic parks and countryside areas. They are designed to show you routes that can be followed until you get to know the areas and can explore some of the other routes and places within the parks.
Stoneleigh Park was officially opened in 1938 and covers 23 acres. At the time it was the largest piece of public open space to be opened in the borough. In 1997 the Council began its first phase refurbishment of Stoneleigh Park culminating in its re-opening in May 1998 and the hosting of the Tulip Fun Day event. Subsequent years have seen continued improvements to the park including ﬂoodlighting, new sport pitches, a trim trail and youth shelters.
Today the park is at the heart of the Oldham community. It provides a wide range of outdoor facilities for all ages, but is an oasis of calm for those who wish to relax.
Walks and accessibility
The leaflet outlines one walk option, covering most of the park.
We believe that most of the paths described are well-surfaced and free of steps and have therefore graded this walk as pushchair and wheelchair-friendly. However, note that we have not been able to verify conditions on site.
How to get there
Derker Metrolink station is just under 0.5 miles/0.8 km from Stoneleigh Park. There is on-street car parking around the park.
