Welcome to Trafford Ecology Park
ATTENTION: Areas of the Ecology Park will be closed to public access until the end of August due to a private event. In addition, there is currently no car park facilities due to construction work on The Meeting Place. Car parking is still available on Lake Road. We apologise for any inconvenience caused.
Tucked away in the industrial heart of Trafford Park, just a few miles away from Manchester City Centre, is the beautiful Trafford Ecology Park; a designated Site of Biological Importance, Local Nature Reserve and a true wildlife oasis.
Trafford Ecology Park is a beautiful and peaceful location which is open most weekdays for the general public to enjoy. It’s proximity to hundreds of businesses in Trafford Park and Salford Quays makes it the perfect place for a lunch time walk or work break.
However, Trafford Ecology Park is more than just a green oasis.
Managed by Groundwork, an organisation helping make Greater Manchester more sustainable, there are a range of services available at the park for businesses to become involved with.
Recently, companies including Syngenta, Highways England and Franke have visited Trafford Ecology Park to participate in a Corporate Volunteering Day where members of their teams learnt new skills and helped to maintain the park’s biodiversity.
Corporate Volunteering is a simple and effective way for businesses to contribute to the community – to find out how your business can get involved simply visit our Corporate Volunteering page.
Groundwork’s Sustainable Business Consultants host a range of Environmental, Quality and Safety training courses from Trafford Ecology Park, all of which can be found on the Training page.
Trafford Ecology Park is a safe outdoor space where outdoor learning and Forest School can be enjoyed by children of all ages. Groundwork employs several Level 3 Forest School practitioners who can help deliver training directly or support a wider programme. More information can be found on the Forest School page.
