I met the woman who means more to me than anyone else in this world on the bandstand in Mesnes Park. I owe an eternal debt of gratitude to that bandstand. It is set in a well manicured and lovely park. Perfect.

I like to walk through Mesnes Park when on my way to and from Wigan. It’s a lovely green space with a duck pond, cafe, children’s play area and much more. Nice to see the flower beds even at this time of year.

Lovely park and walk but too many dog's unsupervised off leads. This causes problems for dogs on leads. Some dog owners who go to mesnes park don't seem to care what their dog's are doing and are oblivious to their dogs whereabouts so for that...More
