The shocking video, which is understood to have been recorded by a teen boy, was posted on social media and quickly circulated.
In the clip, Hope can be seen cowering on the ground in her pyjamas, as a girl hurls insults at her and kicks her repeatedly in the head.
At one point, the girl can be heard shouting "You look like a mouse," through the darkness as Hope groans in pain.
Hope's mum, Hannah Price, 31, has since described her shock at her daughter's unprovoked attack.
'IT'S LIKE THEY'RE ENJOYING IT'
The mum-of-three from Manchester, told The Sun Online: "I can't even watch the whole video.
"It's messed up, like they were enjoying it. I don't know what's wrong with them.
"I know kids are having a hard time and they're bored but I didn't even know that girls behaved like that.
"We want to find this girl so she can be prosecuted."
Hope had been lured to the park by a school friend who'd messaged her to ask to meet her at the park.
Hannah said: "From Hope's account, they promised her snacks from the shop, went to the park and four boys and the girl appeared and attacked her.
"She was pulled to the ground and kicked in the head.
"Hope was supposed to be having a Christmas photoshoot so she was in Christmas pyjamas.
"She has communication difficulties and I've only just started letting her go out to the park and with friends.
"She's got a big bruise on the back of the neck which looks like a footprint, bumps all over her head and a bruised hand."A friend messaged Hope repeatedly to get her to come outCredit: Mercury Press They continued to persist Credit: Mercury Press Eventually the friend told Hope they were coming to her houseCredit: Mercury Press
Hannah received the video from someone who'd seen it circulating on Snapchat.
Hannah, who is a photographer said: "Hope has been friends with the girl who asked her to go to the park since about year one.
"The girl's been going through a difficult time but I never witnessed anything bad behavioural wise or violent and I wouldn't expect this to happen."
She now fears that a similar attack could happen again and has arranged for Hope to attend self-defence classes.
The mum added: "I don't know if I'll be able to let her go out again.
"She comes across all streetwise and I've tricked myself into thinking she's more with it than she is.”
A Greater Manchester Police spokesman said: “Shortly after 9.30pm on Monday 2 November 2020, officers were called to a report of an assault at Chorlton Water Park play area in Manchester.
"A 14-year-old girl was assaulted at some point between 6pm and 6.30pm and taken to hospital with head injuries. She has since been discharged.
"Enquiries are ongoing and anyone with information can call 101 quoting incident number 3005 of 02/11/2020.
"Alternatively, contact Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111."
