Silverdale Park and Glen

Silverdale Park contains a play area, boating lake, and famous water powered merry go round (believed to be the oldest example of its type in the world). The merry go round was popular in the Victorian age and its horses date back to the early 1900's. There is no cost for riding on the merry go round and the lever control can be operated by the public.

Nearby is a cafe building and Cregg Mill buildings. The mill is long dormant, though adds to the character of the area. There is also a pottery craft studio and gift shop.

The second part of the glen was given to the Manx National Trust and is mostly dense woodland and streams. It has well laid out paths leading past small waterfalls and over wooden bridges near shallow lily ponds.
