THE Ponciau Banks Park has reopened after months of redevelopment work.
The park received £504,000 from the Heritage Lottery Fund toward improvements.
The money has been spent on major works including mineshaft capping and tree planting.
The park has improved access and pathways, with lighting, seating and fully operational CCTV.
Further planting work of shrubs and trees will be carried out during the winter period, with a new skate park being installed in the spring.
There is also now a park development officer from the council present on site.
Ponciau councillor Paul Pemberton said: “The redevelopment wouldn’t have happened without all the hard work undertaken by the friends of the Ponciau.
“I’d like to thank the Heritage Lottery Fund for all their help and support and all friends and colleagues at Wrexham County Borough Council.
“The park will provide many happy hours for many people for many years to come.”
The leader of the council, Ponciau councillor Aled Roberts, said: “Following years of hard work by a band of volunteers supported by the community and borough councils and the Heritage Lottery Fund, we have a first-class facility again for our children, young people and the community to enjoy.
“I’m looking forward to the activities which will no doubt take place particularly during the summer months.”
The completion of the scheme signals the end of a long project which has seen the council, the Friends of Ponciau Banks Park, Rhos Community Council and the Heritage Lottery Fund working together to return the park to its 1950s glory.
The park will have an official opening in May 2009.
