Mural in Preston


Random yet fun post! Thought I’d play town planner for the day & list what I’d like to see in Preston’s city centre…Here’s my personal Top 10…

1. A whacking great big kid’s play area, on the scale of Withy Grove Park Play area in Bamber Bridge, with a skate park, BMX ramps, fountains, picnic tables & cafe for families.

2. An independent cinema.

3. Cultural quarter with subsidised artist’s workshops, offices, an exhibition space and shop.

4. Tramlines, cycle routes & zero traffic.

5. A shopping arcade dedicated to independent retailers.

6. More artwork from spray can murals to mosaics to temporary, quirky sculptures.

7. Roller skating rink.

8. Mango, Zara & Mac.

9. A soup kitchen(cheap, nutricious, healthy food for all!).

10. A yoga, tai chi & meditation centre accessible to all.

Oh yes…and an Olympic sized swimming pool & a city farm too!

What would you like to see in the city centre?
