Situated in the Irwell Valley, Clifton Country Park is 48 hectares of beautiful countryside in the heart of the city.

Our café is located in the visitor centre in the car park at the main entrance to the park. It’s perfectly positioned for you to grab a hot or cold drink to take with you as you explore the country park. We also serve cakes, ice cream, toasted tea cakes and crumpets.

Clifton Country Park is one of 2 country parks in Salford and offers acres of open woodland and meadows to explore. Visitors can enjoy lakeside walks, bring a picnic, go fishing or discover hidden remnants of the city’s industrial past. There’s also a great children’s play area.

The park was designated a local nature reserve in 2005 and currently holds the prestigious Green Flag Award.

Clifton is also home to the industrial remains of the Wet Earth Colliery. Established around 1740, the colliery was one of the first deep mines to be sunk in the Irwell Valley.

As well as self-guided trails, the Salford Ranger Team provide a wide range of events and activities and volunteering opportunities throughout the year.
