With the summer holidays in full swing, we asked our readers which were the best children’s playgrounds in the area.
There were three parks mentioned time and time again as being at the top of their game – Withy Grove Park in Bamber Bridge, Hurst Grange Park in Penwortham, and Worden Park in Leyland.
1. Hurst Grange Park, Penwortham
In the heart of Penwortham, this park offers something for everyone.
There's a recently-refurbished children's playground, a new cafe, picnic areas, woodlands, ponds, and free parking off Hill Road. Photo: NW
2. First time winner
Withy Grove Park in Bamber Bridge has a pirate-themed sandy area for smaller children, and slides, climbing frames, bridges, and skate areas for older ones.
Free parking is available as well. Photo: SRBC
3. Worden Park, Leyland
Sure to be busy on a nice day, Worden Park playground is a big hit for children of all ages.
You can easily spend a few hours here, with sandpits, swings, slides and climbing frames.
During the summer holidays, car park restrictions have been lifted. Photo: Catherine Musgrove
4. West Way, Astley Village
A brand-new play area in between West Way and Chancery Road in Astley Village was opened last month by Chorley councillors and pupils from Buckshaw Primary School following the original £2.7 million investment to build the sports hub. Photo: LEP
