Great Sankey’s newest park has been named Vicarage Community Park.
Great Sankey Parish Council ran a competition asking the community to help them name a field off Parsonage Way adjoining the main A57.
The field is being transformed by the Parish Council and Warrington Borough Council into a more accessible community parkland.
Peter Watson Chair of Great Sankey Parish Council said
“Suggestions for names had been shortlisted from a previous public consultation and the community were asked for their help by voting for their favourite name. The votes were counted, and it was a draw between two out of the three suggestions. The Council decided to combine the two winning names and Vicarage Community Park was the outcome.
We’re delighted with the name; we feel that it reflects on the local history of the site and also the use of the field.”
Work on improving the drainage has now been completed, new railings, and pathway have also been installed.
The next phase will include an ornate arch entrance, seating, and landscaping.
