PEOPLE who use Clarence Park in Bury are being urged to take part in a survey to identify future improvements which could be made to the Green Flag winning park.

Visitors are asked to give the main reasons why they go there, what facilities they use and how they could be enhanced, and also whether they would be willing to help by getting involved in a Friends of Clarence Park group.

The survey is open until November 18 and is on the council’s website here:

Hard copies of the survey are being distributed to residents who live near the park.

In the meantime, the public are being asked not to use the skate park, which has had to be closed due to persistent vandalism and is unsafe to use.

Councillor Alan Quinn, cabinet member for the environment, said: “We’re proud that all 12 of our main parks have Green Flag status, and we want to ensure that they continue to be much-loved and well-used facilities. Improvements will depend on the resources we have in the coming years, so I urge people to fill in this survey and also to join us in maintaining Clarence Park for future generations.”
