The dream is nice to look at, but the views from the dream are as good if not better. It is set on top of a created hill - the whole park is reclaimed from a minning area. The park is now established and you...More

Personally I believe this is pointless. The face is getting dirty so looks awful and I am unsure how this is a statue to remember the mines? Don't understand the link. Walk it to it if you like but it's not going to take your...More

I have used the Dream alot and it should be a tranquil and peaceful walk through some great countryside. But recently this has been ruined by youths on scrambler motorbikes, they are noisy, fast and dangerous and the youths don't seemed to care how close...More

Good paths to walk around the area but mostly used for dog walking area. The dream itself is worth a look to see the size of it. Pleasant quiet stroll hidden in a built up area.

Good to visit if you passing by Sutton Manor Woodland, St.- Helens area. It's a lonely place and no information centre or contact persons. It's good for walking with a lot of greenery.

Visited the Dream on a beautiful summers day. Lovely walk up to the statue with lovely views, Really peaceful place to visit and the statue is awesome, plenty of benches for a picnic on a nice day.
