Didsbury Park is a community park located amongst residential housing close to the Didsbury village centre, within close proximity to Old Parsonage Gardens and Fletcher Moss Gardens.
Didsbury Park was one of the first municipal planned parks in the city and was redesigned in the 1920s to include recreational features for residents, some of which still exist.
The site mainly consists of amenity grassland, woodland and flora. The park is thought to have an old air-raid shelter underneath the football pitch.
The park is used mainly for dog walking, recreational play, bowling by local residents and Didsbury Park Ladies Bowling Club, and by the Friends of Didsbury Park. The bowling pavilion is frequently used by veterans for social activities, and local schools use the park for their sports/fun day events and physical education lessons.
An annual one day Didsbury Festival procession takes place in the park, usually in June.
Didsbury Park lies within the St. James’ Conservation Area and contains trees under preservation orders. Advanced notification of 6 weeks must be given to the Planning Department if tree work is to be carried out.
