£100,000 investment in Macclesfield play areas to be unveiled



Back in June, we told you that Macclesfield Town Council had made a commitment to re-vamp two of the town’s play areas, with work taking place over the summer.

The town council’s £100,000 investment in the local play areas is now set to be revealed – with two opening ceremonies that members of the public are welcome to attend.

The brand new play areas on High Street in Macclesfield Central and Hall Grove in Tytherington will be officially opened by the mayor of Macclesfield, Cllr Adam Schofield.


The openings will both take place on Wednesday 10th October:

– High Street at 10am 

– Hall Grove at 2pm


Members of the community are invited to come along with their children for a fun-packed couple of hours, enjoying the new play equipment as well as face painting and snack boxes.

Helena Gowler, community engagement officer for Macclesfield Town Council, said: “Macclesfield Town Council is really excited to show the community the new play areas.

“High Street and Hall Grove are part of what will be an ongoing project to refresh the town’s play areas.

“We hope that families can enjoy the new equipment, encouraging outdoor play all year round.”

It’s a good time for play areas in Macclesfield, as Cheshire East Council spent £45,000 transforming the play park on Bodmin Avenue.

Cheshire East Council’s Cllr Liz Wardlaw said at the time: “This piece of land has become a welcoming and safe open space for local families to meet and for children to play.”
