Preston City Council is putting together a funding bid to upgrade the park and wants to hear from you.

A survey, seeks residents’ views on the park’s existing features and what you would like to see improved.

Among the proposals are: improvements to both play areas to create inclusive facilities; upgrades to the Serpentine Lake to reinstate the historic bridge and add water fountains; restoration of the Loggia shelter, between Blackpool Road and the Serpentine and upgrades to the events area stage.
