Manchester City Council

Councillor Sheila Newman

Our sympathies are with the family and friends of Councillor Sheila Newman, Executive Member for Children’s Services and current Lady Mayoress of Manchester, who passed away last night.

Read our tribute.


Sports, leisure & the Arts Playgrounds

Our much-loved play area has been refurbished and is now open to young people of all ages to enjoy.

All of the current pieces of play furniture have either been completely replaced or restored and extended to accommodate new features.

The centrepiece of the play area is the refurbished iconic tower slide with a new bespoke UFO-theme  that incorporates the current high slide.

Inclusive play attractions have been added into the area – including a wheelchair accessible roundabout, double bay cradle swings and a new nest for the existing cantilever swing that will make the play item also fully accessible.

Open everyday during park hours this free, fun attraction is a must for all our young visitors.

This work has been funded through Clean City funding.

Please note that the playground will be closed in the morning on 15 September 2017 for intensive maintenance works.
