The park is home to Flixton Gardens and House which were built in 1806 by wealthy landowners the Wright family. It was opened as a park when the land was acquired by the council in 1935. The grounds include a walled garden, rose garden and herbaceous border, sensory garden and a memorial bee garden for the victims of the Manchester Arena attack. The park was awarded its first Green Flag in 2018.
