Walks for all - Weaver Parkway
The Weaver Parkway is an extensive area of open green space alongside the River Weaver on the outskirts of Winsford. It was created on former industrial land of brine workings and salt mining, creating a unique habitat for unusual wildlife.
Distance 2.5km (1.5 mile) - allow 1 - 1.5 hours.
Surface: Firm compacted grit surface, some gradients are slightly greater than 1:10 however there are several resting/passing points along the route.
Description: A wonderful open greenspace to enjoy a picnic or take a riverside stroll, there are other paths on site but these have a slightly steeper gradient and include some steps down to the Red Lion Public House.
The Weaver Parkway is within walking distance of Winsford town centre. By car it can be reached off Weaver Valley Road which is off the A5018. There are no toilets or refreshments available on site, but there are several public houses nearby.
Car parking is free at the Rangers’ Office and there are three dedicated disabled parking bays. The car park is open from 9am - 4.30pm. There is a site plan at the car park indicating an easy access route - see below for further details.
