Leverhulme Park

Another of Lord Leverhulme's gifts to the people of Bolton, this is the largest park area within Bolton with football fields, 5-a-side football pitches, and a running and athletics ground as well as nature walks and picnic areas. It is bounded by Darcy Lever, Haulgh and Breightmet. [nature trail path between trees]
