Rose Vale Park Friends
Group Heald Green have successfully been awarded a Community Network
grant to refurbish the children's play area, Manchester airport have
also donated funds and Cheshire Landscape Trust has donated 25
The Friends of Rose Vale Park started the group in January 2006 when
the then Mayor Cllr Peter Burns told them that some money had been
ring fenced by the council to improve the Rose Vale Park which at
the time was in a poor state. As a result the group that formed the
Friends, produced flyers which they distributed to all the people in
the local area asking them what they would like to see done with the
park. From this survey they got some feedback of the options that
could be explored.
Plans have been drawn by designers which serve as a blueprint, and
these have to be tweaked in some ways so that the park is easy to
maintain by the council.
The land first of all needs extensive drainage, before anything can
be done with it. The land had been given to the council by builders
who due to the lack of drainage could not build on it at the time.
Thereafter it will need landscaping, paths, an outdoor gym and a
children's play area.
