Openshaw Park
Openshaw Park is a local community public park of approximately 5 hectares. It is located just over a mile outside of Bury town centre in an area historically known as Pimhole. Openshaw Park was one of four parks established following a public meeting in 1883, with contributions from Lord Derby, the Lord of the Manor, a public subscription, and, in this particular case, generous contributions of land and money from a local benefactor, Mr Thomas O Openshaw. This and another three parks were opened by the Prince of Wales, HRH Prince Albert Victor, on 21 July 1888.

Its facilities include crown green bowling pavilion and greens, children's play area, two multi-play ball zones, one flood-lit and two flood-lit tennis courts.
