Buile Hill Park

Located within the Claremont and Weaste area of Salford, Buile Hill Park is a Grade II listed Park of National Historic Importance.

It has had a long and varied history with links to many important historical figures. Some of the lesser known facts include links to a certain Mr L.S. Lowry, a one time local rent collector who frequented the park before gaining recognition for his works of art. Emmeline Pankhurst the local girl turned suffragette and Frances Hodgson Burnett author of the classic children's novel The Secret Garden rumoured perhaps romantically to have been written during one of her many visits to Buile Hill Mansion.

Today Buile Hill Park covers an area of approximately 35 hectares. Whilst some of the historic features have been lost over the past century the park itself has survived largely intact. During the past three years a steady series of improvements has begun. New play areas have been built, many of the once grand carriageways re-surfaced and areas of planting renewed. Home to the popular Buile Hill Park Banqueting Suite, the park provides an attractive environment for local people. It features:

  • tennis courts
  • tropical plant collections
  • play areas
  • picnic areas.

An open air venue for many of the city's events, including the annual Bonfire Night firework displays, it remains Salford's favourite public park.
