About

Further south of Douglas is this extremely popular rendezvous for all the family with a childrens playground (including a unique Victorian water-powered roundabout), boating lake and cafe. Access to the glen and toilets for the disabled are available.

There is a series of marked walks centred on the Silverburn river. These river walks illustrate the importance of the water power of the Silverburn in times gone by as they pass the weir and watercourses of the Silverdale Mill. 

Further downstream is the 14th century Monk's Bridge and historic site of Rushen Abbey.
