“ A green  lung in a densely  urban area.” Sir Gerald Kaufman MP 1930 - 2017

Debdale Park is a much loved park in the Gorton area of East Manchester.

It is a large green open space of historic interest which has always been at the heart of the local community.

The Friends of Debdale Park are local people who not only volunteer to help in the upkeep of the park but work to develop its potential as a resource for the whole community.
