Situated between Fallowfield and Rusholme and dating back to 1908, Platt Fields is one of Manchester's principal parks. There are plenty of things to see within its area, including a costume museum on the grounds and beautifully kept gardens. Other leisure facilities include three tennis courts, four bowling greens, a roller hockey pitch and crazy golf. The wide expanses play host to annual shows and funfairs (along with a popular bonfire night firework display), while the Fallowfield end of the park also has a large boating and angling lake.
