Stanney Fields Park
Stanney Fields Park has been awarded Green Flag
status, a prestigious award which is the national benchmark for parks and open spaces. This indicates that the park has fulfilled the judging criteria and is a safe, welcoming and well maintained park offering a range of recreational and leisure opportunities for people of all ages.
Set in the heart of Neston town centre, the park is easily accessible by its five entrance points making it a great place for relaxing; playing sport; walking your dog and family picnics. It has its own on site gardener, an active Friends group and a regular programme of events including sports coaching sessions, annual fun day and dog show.
The dell is planted with shrubs and specimen trees. Stanney Brook which runs through the dell adds to the relaxing atmosphere of this area of the park. Disabled access is limited for this area of the park; however there is access from the entrance by the bridge.
The park has two areas providing stimulating play opportunities for children up to the age of 12 years. There is also a multi-use games area (MUGA) for casual sports activities such as football, basketball, netball and hockey.
There is a wheels park with a quarter pipe, jump combo and wedge/flatbank which is ideal for BMX bikes, skateboards and roller blades. There is also a sports viewing shelter for spectators. Riders are advised to wear safety equipment for their own protection when using the facilities.
Stanney Fields Park is located off Hinderton Road, Neston, CH64 9PE
