Labour Councillors plan to improve Maghull parks which are ‘woef

Cllr Steve Kermode, Cllr Caroline Esterson and Maghull Town Council’s Facilities Manager Peter Taylor at Green Park in The Round Mead.


Labour Councillors on Maghull Town Council say they are determined to improve a much used public park.

Cllrs Caroline Esterson and Steve Kermode say the playground in The Round Meade is "woefully inadequate".

The park  is well used, particularly by children and parents travelling to and from Green Park County Primary and St John Bosco.

But Cllr Esterson, whose children are regular visitors to the park, said there was a real need for new play equipment at the park.

Cllr Esterson said: "I visit the park quite regularly with my children. It's not too far away from where I live and it is in a really nice location. But the problem is, there isn't much for the children to play on.

"I've spoken to lots of parents who pass the park on their way to the Green Park County Primary and St John Bosco. They all tell me that they would like the park to be improved.

"It is something which we are looking at in Maghull Town Council to see what improvements can be made either now or when a budget can be found to carry out the work."

Cllr Kermode said The Round Mead park is one of a number of parks which have been highlighted by residents as needing investment.

Cllr Kermode said: "We have been getting a number of requests for park improvements in Maghull and of course we'd love to improve them all, but we have to make sure that we can find the budget to do it.

"A number of us recently made a site visit to a park on Ribble Avenue to look at the play equipment there after we received a fantastic letter from five-year-old Madalynn Burness who was asking for improvements to her favourite playground.

"We are currently making a full list of what improvements we want to make at the parks and have been in discussion with some of the parents and children who regularly use the parks to see just what they want."
