A community has marked the opening of a transformed green space.
Young and old attended the launch of the revamped ‘Ingol Dip’.
The area had long been used as a walk-through between adjoining neighbourhoods.
Community members came together to decide how this space will be used in the future.
With support and funding from the Big Lottery Fund, Community Gateway Association, Lancashire County Council and Groundwork, sculptor Thompson Dagnall was commissioned to provide sculptures reflecting the wildlife and habitat of the area.
Ingol Community Association (ICA), and local schools Ingol Community Primary School and Holy Family School were invited to come up with plans and suggestions on what they wanted to see as part of the redevelopment.
Pupils from both schools got a chance to be a sculptor for the day as they joined Thompson for a Masterclass.
The youngsters created their favourite animals in the landmark structures, which aim to leave a lasting legacy for everyone in the community.
Along with the sculptures the dip now boasts a refurbished play area and landscaping has been created to attract local wildlife.
Mr Dagnall said: “It has been a privilege to be able to work on this project.
“I would like to thank all the children who put a lot of thought and effort into creating their designs for the sculptures they were a pleasure to work with.”
Gordon Wang from Ingol Community Association said: “I would like to thank Thompson and all of the partners here today for supporting this project and bringing Ingol Dip back to life.
“It is great to see the transformation complete and ready for the community to enjoy.”
The Ingol Dip Project received £100,000 in funding and it started in 2010 with various work undertaken since then.
