Overview

Developed into a park during the 1960s and 70s, Daisy Nook is now a popular place for walks, fishing, horse-riding and generally enjoying the countryside. Attractive woodland areas, a lake, canal, meadows, river and a dramatic aqueduct are all features of the park, which is in a wooded valley separating the urban sprawls of Oldham and Ashton-under-Lyne.The area first became popular for recreation in Victorian times, when families would picnic by the river and take boat rides on the lake. An Easter fair dating back to that time is still held. At the visitor centre you will also find exhibitions, children's activities, souvenirs and a café.
