Mayfield Park

Opened in September 2022, Mayfield Park is Manchester's first new central park in more than 100 years.
Located near to Piccadilly railway station, Mayfield Park is located on a formerly derelict area of Manchester
that was once the centre of the British textiles industry during the Industrial Revolution.

The River Medlock, one of Manchester's three major rivers, was uncovered as part of the
development after more than 50 years contained under a concrete covering.  Once heavily
polluted, it now runs through the park and attracts wildlife including kingfishers,
brown trout, ducks and geese.
