Channelside Haven

Channelside Haven, on the Barrow side of Walney Channel next to the bridge, is based on the design concept of a "shell", and features the theme of "The Channel", a specially commissioned poem written by writer Sarah Miller.

A large variety of materials have been imaginatively used to create flowing pathways. Visitors can wander among the scented gardens with panoramic views of Walney Channel. The park is the gateway to the "Red Man Way" a coastal footpath running along Walney Channel. A detailed walk leaflet is available from Barrow Tourist Information Centre.
