Family fun as Winsford Town Park celebrates its first birthday

“We’re calling it ‘party in the park’,” said John Malam, chairman of Friends of Winsford Town Park. “And like all birthday parties, there will be a cake to cut!”

The park was transformed into an multi-activity outdoor attraction after a £900,000 makeover last year.

Jo Fawcett, a horticulturalist, provided expert advice on the park's colourful and thoughtful planting layout.

The development was a joint project between Cheshire West and Chester Council and Winsford Town Council, which owns the park.

“We’d like people to come along and enjoy being in this superb open space right in the heart of Winsford," said John.
