Sale Water Park
SALE WATER PARK - This popular water sports centre is located alongside the M60 motorway approximately 5 nautical miles NNW of Manchester Airport. It is a common routing for helicopters through the Manchester CTR towards the north or inbound to Barton.
To the north is an area of urban sprawl comprising Stretford, Trafford Park and eventually Manchester City Centre. Landmarks such as Old Trafford football and cricket grounds are easily seen as well as a number of high rise apartment and office complexes in the centre of Manchester.
Immediately to the east is Sale Golf Course. This too borders the M60 motorway.
To the west is Junction 7 of the M60 motorway. This junction serves the towns of Sale to the south and Stretford to the north via the A56 road. The River Mersey also runs alongside Sale Water Park and underneath Junction 7 towards the west.
To the south is the large town of Sale. This sprawling urban area spreads south towards Wythenshawe and Altrincham before eventually reaching Manchester Airport.
