Halton Lodge new play area opening with halton housing and partners

Community comes together to open new play park  

1st November 2019

2 minutes

A newly renovated play park has been unveiled in Halton Lodge, Runcorn.  

The upgrade is thanks to significant investment from Halton Housing, funding from the Environmental Fund and from Halton Borough Council’s Area Forum fund with support from the Area Forum 5 Councillors; Kath Loftus, Alan Lowe, Dave Thompson, Chris Loftus and Geoffrey Logan.

Earlier this year, consultations took place with local children and members of the community at various locations, as well as shoppers at ShoppingCity Runcorn asking what changes to the park they would like to see, and the type of play equipment they would like to see installed.  

The transformed play area in Halton Lodge now boasts two new multi-play units and sensory equipment plus renovated equipment. The park has been designed to be inclusive for all. 

A new path has replaced steps down to the basketball court, while the entrance to the area has been opened up to allow better views across the park from the adjacent footpath. 

Christine Walker, Environmental Services Manager at Halton Housing said: “The residents of Halton Lodge deserve a huge amount of credit for making this happen. They have been the driving force behind it, and it’s great to work with people who are so passionate about where they live and want to make a difference. The new play area looks fantastic, and I have no doubt it will prove to be a big hit with children for many years to come.” 

The new play park links to the ‘Places to be proud of’ priority within ‘Our Direction 3 (OD3)’ – Halton Housing’s corporate strategy for 2019-22. Find out more about OD3.
