Manor Heath and Jungle Experience
The park occupies the site of an old manor house that fell into terminal decline after the war and was demolished in 1959. Fortunately, the park has continued in use and has become one of the best parks within the region. The park occupies around eight hectares with a large number of facilities on site.
The area where the manor house once stood is now a sunken garden. The house's walled garden still exists and has been split into ten smaller gardens and includes many traditional as well as modern designs of planting. Other features within the park include a woodland walk, a park trail, and a wildflower area. Recent additions to the parks facilities include an inclusive play area, an exciting new inclusive water and sand play area, toilet facilities and the Flutter-bites cafe.
The Jungle Experience at Manor Heath Park is a tropical oasis packed with fish, quail, terrapin and butterflies as well as a collection of plants from all over the world, where visitors can enjoy the all year round tropical atmosphere.
Manor Heath’s Jungle Experience and surrounding nursery area, including the Walled Garden, are closed to the public until further notice due to damage to the Glass House roof during high winds on Monday 11 August 2014.
Throughout the year there is a full programme of events for all the family! For details of these see What's on: Events in Calderdale
Please note: Dog Control Orders are now in force in Calderdale's parks.
