A park that underwent a major transformation this year is to be officially opened by the Mayor of Stafford Borough next month.
A range of new facilities were introduced to Holmcroft Park in Stafford as part of a £435,000 scheme.
New children’s play equipment, a multi-use games area, skate bowl and outdoor gym (pictured) were installed during the five-month Stafford Borough Council project. More footpaths were created around the park as well as new seating and picnic areas.
And on 31 July, the Mayor of Stafford Borough, Councillor Tony Nixon, will officially open the park and kick start a range of activities that will be taking place on the day. The Mayor will be joined by local councillors on the day with more details of the itinerary released closer to the date of the event.
Councillor Carolyn Trowbridge, Cabinet Member for Leisure at Stafford Borough Council, said the authority had an excellent track record in delivering facilities that were popular with the community.
“This is another great example of how we have worked with residents and the community to ensure we have a park that everyone can enjoy. Holmcroft Park has already been very popular with local people and it will be nice to have the Mayor give it an official opening.
“It has been a pleasure to see Victoria Park reopen last year following a £2.5 million restoration and the redevelopment of Charnley Road Park – and this is a demonstration of the investment the council is putting into our parks and open spaces in the borough.”
Holmcroft Park was designed following feedback from residents and community organisations in the area.
