Fleetwood’s Memorial Park may be in the midst of a multi-million restoration project, but Wyre Council is asking residents for their views on the facility.

Residents are being asked to take part in a quick survey to tell the council what they think about the park.

The park’s comprehensive restoration project is taking place thanks to a £2.4m grant from the Heritage and Big Lottery Funds and will transform the green space for the benefit of local people.

But as work progresses this year, the council wants input from residents about how they use the park, how they rate it and what they would like to see happen there.

A Wyre spokeswoman said: “We want to find out about the people who use the Grade II-listed park and what they think about it.

“We will use feedback from the survey to review our restoration work and the programme of community activities.”

To take part in the survey visit wyre.gov.uk/park survey. The deadline for responses is February 26.

Memorial Park was created in commemoration of the First World War and is one of only a few listed war memorial parks and gardens in the country.

Work at the park has so far included the restoration of the pavilion and entrance gateway, and planting of new trees, while more children’s activities were introduced last year.
