THE new-look play area at Meadow Bank, Winsford, was officially opened by town mayor Cllr Des Worthington.
Cllr Worthington, who has campaigned for better play facilities in the area for four years, cut the ribbon on Friday morning.
The £35,000 project was brought to fruition by Winsford Town Council and a substantial grant from environmental group WREN, and is the first of five parks in the area which the council has pledged to renovate.
“The new play area looks superb and I’m delighted it has been completed in time for the school summer holidays,” said the mayor.
“I’m sure Meadow Bank youngsters will be pleased to see it includes many of the items of play equipment they asked for during the public consultation.
“The town council is grateful for the help and support of Vale Royal Borough Council and, of course, WREN, whose generous grant helped turn our vision into reality.”
Former town and borough councillor Peter Gannon, of Nixon Drive, fought alongside Cllr Worthington to help realise the plans.
He said: “We have strived for this and are delighted it has come to fruition.”
