Fletcher Moss Botanical Gardens is a botanic garden and wildlife habitat. Flanked by the River Mersey and Stenner Woods, the garden is perfect for long, adventurous walks through beautiful surroundings, as well as providing an educational aspect to visitors. Named after a local council man Fletcher Moss, who donated the grounds to the city of Manchester in 1919, the garden has been open to the public ever since. Fletcher Moss is also the founding place of the Royal Society for the Protection of Birds (RSPB).

The main part of the garden is formed by a walled rock garden, originally laid out by botanist Robert Wood Williamson. It has the charm and draw of an enchanted English garden. Extending towards Stenner Woods, an attractive wild meadow bordering the woodland offers brilliant grounds for wildlife hunts and explorative walks, fun for every member of the family!

Fletcher Moss Botanical Garden holds the Green Flag Award, signifying national standards for parks and open spaces in England, and has done so since 2000. Celebrated for both its beauty and its interesting selection of trees and shrubs, Fletcher Moss Botanical Garden is a must see for all botanist enthusiasts, and anyone who wants a breath of fresh air in serene and peaceful settings.
