Jubilee Gardens in Cleveleys will benefit from £35,000 of improvements thanks to investment from Wyre Council, alongside a grant from the Lancashire Environmental Fund. Installation of the new play equipment began on 12 October.
Money from Wyre Council’s capital programme, plus £30,000 from the Lancashire Environmental Fund will be used to give the park a new lease of life.
Jubilee Gardens is the largest park in Cleveleys and was opened in 1937 and a friends group for the park was formed in 2016. Public consultations led by the friends group took place in 2016 and 2018 to gauge local opinion and to inform future plans for the park.
The new equipment is also thanks to the Friends of Jubilee Gardens who have added additional funding to provide seating to complement the new play equipment.
Councillor Simon Bridge, Portfolio Holder for Street Scene, Parks and Open Spaces comments, “Our team have worked hard to secure additional funding for this much loved park in Cleveleys and we are delighted to be able to make these improvements.
“We want to give local young people access to high quality recreation equipment whatever their age and this investment will make a real difference to the local community.”
Work began on 12 October to install new play equipment at the park.
