The landscape of the Memorial Gardens has remained relatively unchanged since its opening. The gardens were already in existence as the grounds of Cliffe House.

With the demolition of the Cliffe House buildings and subsequent relocation of the War Memorial to Dale Street, the original design and integrity was enhanced by the placing of the memorial on the footprint of Cliffe House foundations.

Milnrow Memorial Park attracts a wide variety of wildlife both birds insects and small mammals. This is enhanced by the woodland, which acts as a wildlife oasis with its mature trees providing natural homes for birds and mammals. Nesting and roosting sites are being further enhanced by the inclusion of bird and bat boxes.

Facilities include a skateboard park, a crown bowling green, a multi-use games area and a play area.
