Northwich also boasts a wealth of charming countryside spots, including Vickersway Park, a hidden gem on the outskirts of Northwich town centre. There, both children and adults can enjoy games like crazy golf, table tennis, bowling, a skate park, and a play area – all whilst grabbing a drink at the cafe (please note only open Monday-Friday 12pm-5pm, Saturday & Sunday 10am-5pm – weather dependent). Or stroll over to Verdin Park, another fantastic open space for everyone to enjoy, complete with a play area for kids. Carey Park on the outskirts of the town leads to various accessible walking routes, including the Witton Mill Meadow and eventually to Marbury Country Park. And, if you simply want a space to relax, why not enjoy a calming riverside walk along the Rivers Weaver and Dane.
