Queen’s Green Canopy

To celebrate the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee, Kinwarton Parish Council have planted a new copse in St. Mary’s Park, consisting of a selection of native species. As they grow they should provide a peaceful area for walking and contemplation.

St Mary’s Park

The children’s play area within St. Mary’s Park has a good range of exciting play equipment.Aided by a contribution of funds from Redrow Housing under the terms of the agreement allowing development of ‘The Pastures’ residential housing estate, the Parish Council was able to replace several pieces of equipment so as to enhance the play experience available at St. Mary’s Park.

Consideration was given to providing a range of equipment suitable for a variety of age groups and abilites and the result has been well received by local residents and children. More recently, new swings have been added to the park, updating the 50 year-old sets to modern safety standards.

For those new to the area, the park can be found on St. Mary’s Road which is at the end of Throckmorton Road. There is also an extensive grass area to enjoy – suitable for ball games, walking, exercising etc. The park is also popular with dog walkers and is well served with 2 dog waste bins so that the area can be kept clean.

The river Alne meanders around the edge of the park and is popular with fishermen.
