Notices

We're close to the centre of Wigan, so if you live locally you have the option of walking to us.

Directions if you're driving

Haigh Woodland Park is within easy reach of both the M6 (J27) and the M61 (J6). If approaching from the M6, take the A49 towards Standish, then the B5239 to Haigh. Look out for the B5239 and Aspull, then Haigh, when leaving the M61.

Alternatively, Haigh Woodland Park can easily be found close to the two main A roads, the A6 and the A49.

If you're using your Sat Nav, our address is Haigh Woodland Park, Wigan, WN2 1PE.

Parking

A large car park is located near Haigh Hall and has a number of disabled parking spaces available. Haigh Woodland Park is now operating a ticketed barrier pay system in all car parks. This means payment is on exit from the car park, so there will be no ticket to display.

Car parking is free up to 30 minutes, £1.50 between 30 mins and 90 mins, and £3.50 all day thereafter. Parking can be paid using cash or card.

The car park is open 8am-5pm weekdays and 7.30am-5pm at the weekend.

Facilities

The Visitor Centre has toilets both inside and behind the Centre, male and female changing rooms and shower, wet room with accessible toilet and shower, and baby changing facility.

The Stables building has an accessible toilet and baby changing facility on the ground floor near the green lift, and toilets upstairs near the green lift.

There are also toilets and baby changing facilities on the corner of the Stables building, on the front side near the Graze in The Park cafe terrace. There is an accessible toilet with baby changing facility inside, as well as a motorised changing table for people with disabilities, and a hoist. A radar key is needed to access this and is available on request from the Visitor Centre.

Accessibility

All Kitchen Courtyard shops and cafes are accessible for wheelchair users, including the Visitor Centre, and a green lift facilitates access to the first floor of the Stables building.

The Kitchen Courtyard has 4 picnic benches that are wheelchair friendly, with one end of the table that juts out to allow wheelchair users to position themselves. We also have a few wheelchair friendly benches dotted around some of our picnic areas, with benches positioned next to an accessible pathway.

Adventure golf has block paved paths all around the course which are wheelchair accessible. All pathways in the upper side of the park are accessible for wheelchair users. Further down from our picnic areas, the pathways are rougher in terrain. Potentially accessible, but down to the discretion of the individual.

Please note, due to the terrain of our paths, we would not recommend our running events for wheelchair users. If taking a stroll or spectating in one of our events, some of the paths are uneven so those with accessibility issues may require assistance.
