A giant beach is coming to Heaton Park this summer and it will be free to visit.
The Stone Roses frontman Ian Brown said it himself: Manchester has everything…except a beach.
Well no more! This weekend, the North West’s biggest mobile beach will open at Heaton Park, complete with sand, deck chairs and a funfair.
The fair will be set up next to the boating lake and will include a host of traditional rides for kids of all ages, from the twister, waltzers and crazy cars, to inflatables, boats and more.
Come To The Beach will be open every day from July 21 to September 2, 12pm-5pm.
