Opened in September 2022, Mayfield Park is Manchester's
first new central park in more than 100 years. Located near
to Piccadilly railway station, it 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.
