The Friends of Moor Park are urgently asking for your votes to fund new play area equipment.


The Grade II listed site is already due to have almost £2million spent on its heritage restoration project however the group have applied to the Aviva Community Fund to improve the play area for children and to create a space suitable for all abilities.

The current equipment is not accessible for children with disabilities. This is one of the driving forces behind the campaign which is a bid to change the situation. The project is also looking to improve social and health benefits for the community.

Voting closes at the end of May and the Friends of Moor Park are eager to gather support from the Preston people for the project.

Lisa McManus, member of the group, said, “I have been taking my son to Moor Park since he was very young. The park and its facilities are used by so many families and children all year round. A majority of people using the park don’t have back gardens, just small yards. I think the children in the area deserve a well-equipped, inclusive play area. Health and well-being from playing outside, isn’t that what we want for our children?

“I really hope Friends of Moor Park are successful in their application for funds. The park really needs a new climbing frame and other equipment.”
