New initiative welcomes dogs to Tatton Park’s formal gardens

In a new initiative that Tatton Park are trialling this year, dogs on short leads will be welcome in Tatton’s formal gardens every day through the summer, from 1 May 2024.

Dogs of all shapes and sizes can explore fifty acres of formal and landscaped gardens with their owners, enjoying the views and finding their favourite picnic spot in the longer summer days.

Pick up the poo!

This new dog initiative in the gardens, will be trialled across the summer months and will be reviewed at the end of September 2024. Not everyone loves dogs, and some people fear them, so visitors are reminded to make sure their dogs don’t approach other people, especially children, unless it’s invited to. Remember to always pick up your pooches’ poo too!

Protecting parkland wildlife

In addition to the gardens there are some wonderful parkland walks for visitors with dogs to explore with over one thousand acres of ancient deer park to enjoy. Dogs can exercise off lead, under close control, in the parkland for most of the year but for example, during deer calving time in the spring, dogs will need to be on leads and under close control from 1 May – 31 July 2024. This is to help support efforts to protect precious parkland wildlife, farm animals and habitats.

Planning a visit with your dog Visitors are asked to check regularly updated guidelines on and to look out for signage on site, during their visit.
