UPDATE: Proposed regeneration of play and recreation facilities at Birchwood Forest Park
Over the last year, the Town Council has been working towards presenting proposals for a significant regeneration project to enhance Birchwood Forest Park.
Following an extensive community consultation and working in partnership with Warrington Borough Council, landowners of the park, documentation was prepared and an application for grant funding has been submitted to WREN.
At the May Town Council meeting, outgoing Chair, Councillor Pauline Nelson, was delighted to be able to announce that WREN has awarded the Town Council and the local community funding of £50,000 toward the costs of refurbishing the play and recreation facilities within Birchwood Forest Park.
The Town Council and Warrington Borough Council (the landowner) are also providing significant amounts of capital towards the project; the first phase of which will see overgrown areas thinned out, improvements to the play equipment and play area and the installation of some informal fitness equipment.
The Town Council is hoping that in future years we may also be able to look at improvements to the informal kickabout pitch and the skateboard/BMX area.
We are hoping the project will commence as soon as is possible, particularly as this year sees the 30th anniversary of the park.
