Moss Bank Park is one of the most popular public parks in Bolton with a wide range of attractions for families to enjoy.
Animal World is a small zoo that appeals mainly to young children. It features birds, goats, rabbits, guinea pigs, and other farm animals. The attraction was once free but in April 2011 a small charge was introduced. The butterfly house also closed around the same time.
The park also boasts a large children’s play area with swings, climbing frames, slides, and a sand pit. A miniature railway jointly operated by Bolton Council and Moss Bank Model Railway Society runs at weekends and holidays. A small fare is charged.
Moss Bank Park also boasts a small fairground with a rollercoaster, bouncy castle, trampolines, fun house, carousels, and crazy golf (fees apply). The park also hosts a number of popular annual events including a kite flying festival and Christmas fair.
Other facilities include free public tennis courts, a bowling green, 2 car parks, public toilets, and a small kiosk selling ice cream, hot dogs, burgers, and drinks. The large café was destroyed by fire in July 2009.
