Within the boundaries of Onchan there are three national glens all meeting at the Whitebridge.
Molly Quirk's Glen, Bibaloe Walk and Groudle Glen all provide a pleasant leafy walk and can be linked to the various public rights of way to be found in Onchan. The rights of way are indicated on a map available from the Department of Community, Culture and Leisure.
In addition the area around the Clypse and Kerrowdhoo Reservoirs now provides a series of footpaths and ancient tracks for walking. A leaflet incorporating a map is readily available from the Onchan Library or the Commissioners' Offices as well as at the Department of Community, Culture and Leisure and the Isle of Man Water Authority.
There are also a number of play areas to allow children freedom of play in a dog free environment. Further details can be found under 'Play Areas' on the website.
