The park is a mixture of open ground, woodland and avenues with a replica of Liverpool Castle located near the lower reservoir. The terraced gardens – once the private gardens of Lord Levehulme’s residence - provide visitors with a unique landscape to explore.
These include a Japanese garden and lake, magnificent 7-arched bridge, an Italian garden and lake, a number of summer houses and viewing platforms and the former Orchestra Lawn. There are spectacular views westward toward the coast from the Pigeon Tower. Down by the reservoirs there are network of paths suitable for walking, wheelchairs and cycling. The GO Ape Rivington provides something for the more adventurous.
