Natural play area at Cheyney Road opens

19 July 2017

The sun came to help celebrate the opening of the Cheyney Road natural play area. 

Cheshire West and Chester Council worked in partnership with the Mersey Forest and the Garden Quarter Residents Association to develop the new community facility. 

Local ward member, Councillor Bob Rudd and council officers encouraged residents to come together and develop a Community Ward Plan, to identify priority projects for the Garden Quarter. 

The Council's Cabinet Member for Communities and Wellbeing, Councillor Louise Gittins, said: “Garden Quarter residents have taken ownership of the projects and have built on a fantastic community spirt. Community consultations have taken place during the development of the natural play area to ensure priorities of the community and the heritage of the park have been identified throughout the process.” Residents from the Garden Quarter came together to celebrate the official opening of the new play area, while enjoying a family afternoon of crafts and refreshments.  Over the last few months residents have taken part in tree planting and willow-weaving activities at the park and pupils from the Blue Coat have design mosaics that will be installed before the summer holidays.
