Improvement of Riverside Playground, Penwortham

Closed 17 Oct 2022

Opened 20 Sep 2022

Feedback expected 28 Nov 2022


South Ribble Borough Council are currently improving a number of the borough’s play areas and funds have been allocated to refurbish Riverside Playground at Margaret Road in Penwortham.  

The proposed improvements are proposed to begin following the completion of the flood defence works around the River Ribble by the Environment Agency and will provide new equipment for toddlers (ages 2-6), juniors (ages 7-12) and could include swings, seesaws, multi- climbers and slides.

Ideas for possible new equipment are provided on the following pages.

Why your views matter

We are inviting the public to help us design the new playground by telling us

  • What you like and don’t like about the existing playground
  • What do you think about the suggested types of new equipment
  • What else you think would help improve the playground

What happens next

We aim to publish feedback on this site in November 2022.  Project progress updates will also be released through the council's social media channels.
