The Park Keeper's Lodge, Crumpsall Park
Once the site and grounds of Crumpsall Hall, Crumpsall Park is one of the city's oldest municipal parks.

The land was originally intended for use as a cemetery, this idea was abandoned and in 1890 and the plot was made into a recreational park as part of the shift towards providing open space for the purposes of leisure and sport in Manchester.

The park retains its formal layout with lawns and areas of formally mown amenity grassland, specimen and avenue trees. This original park keepers lodge remains in the park today. According to LinkExternal link (Archive LinkExternal link ) Manchester City Council, “Crumpsall Park offers a green oasis in a densely populated area and is a focal point for the community”.
