Ages: all ages

Venue type: Outdoor

Withy Grove Park playground is one of the largest free facilities of its type in the North West being the borough's flagship effort and has been designed to contain a range of equipment that caters for all ages across 3 zones.

The site is lit until 21:00 in the toddler and junior areas and 22:00 in the teen area, so this really is a community playground, available whenever people need it! For security and public safety the playground is covered by a cctv system, which is reassuring of an evening, and it's on the same side of the park as the Bamber Bridge Leisure Centre and sports pitches.

The western side of the park is currently a bit wilder, nice for mini beast spotting and meadow walks, but it's marked for some landscaping fairly soon.

You can find pedestrian access to the park from Sergeant Street, Withy Grove Close and from the Asland Close pedestrian level crossing.

This park is fantastic for children of all ages. There's an area where children can play in sand surrounding play equipment. Seating areas for eating or resting. The only negative is the lack of toilets...well there is but it's at the leasure centre attached and when you've got a desparate toddler it isn't ideal. There is also another but not well signposted, not maintained and often unclean. If you're going to spend all day there, having a cafe or toilet block would be beneficial. However in the summer months, an ice cream stall is open.
