Whether you’re local or are new to the area, there are some fab dog walks in Wigan, here are just a few of our favourites.

Borsdane Wood

If you’re a dog walker in Wigan looking for somewhere your pup can safely paddle this is a great place to visit. With a mix of woodland area, tall trees and lots of pretty streams your pup is sure to enjoy an afternoon stroll here. There are also often many other dog walkers enjoying the scenery, perfect if your dog likes to socialise.

Haigh Woodland Park

Pack a picnic and head to Haigh Woodland Park for the afternoon with your pup. There is lots to keep the whole family amused for an afternoon, from crazy golf to a children’s park, woodland walks and plenty of open space for those endless games of fetch. Make sure you visit the cafe and grab an ice-cream or a post walkies refreshment.

Fairy Glen

A lovely quiet place to walk a dog in Wigan is Fairy Glen. Situated in the centre of beautiful woodlands with a stream running through, you can easily lose a few hours here taking in the scenery. Your pup can enjoy exploring the undergrowth and there is even places for him to take a dip if it’s a nice day.

Worthington Lakes

We couldn’t talk about dog walking in Wigan without giving Mesnes Park a special mention. If you’re looking for a lovely calm walk in beautifully kept surroundings, then this is the walk for you. With a bandstand, waterfall, stunning formal gardens as well as a children’s play area there is plenty to explore. After you’ve exhausted many games of fetch and have finished your walk why not grab an ice-cream from Frederick’s ice cream parlour or bring your own picnic and make an afternoon of it.
