About Poynton Park

Poynton Park is situated just a few minutes walk from the centre of Poynton village. It is a valuable amenity with its pool, ancient trees and wildlife.  The Park covers 21 hectares including the pool.

A surfaced circular path takes you from the car park at South Park Drive, alongside the pool, the lime avenue and through the grassland.  There is also a linear public footpath from the car park at Anglesey Drive, which takes you alongside the western edge of the pool.
