Manchester's first park

Plans to create Manchester's first public park for more than 90 years have been submitted to the city council.


Mayfield Park is proposed for a site on the banks of the River Medlock, close to Piccadilly station in the city centre.


The 6.5-acre (26,000 sq m) public space is part of a 1.4bn plan to regenerate a run-down area south of Fairfield Street with hundreds of new homes.





Work is expected to start in 2020 and will take up to 15 years to complete.

I would really like to have a positive reaction to the plan, however I fear that within months of opening this area will become overrun with anti-social behaviour, druggies, prostitution, muggings, rough sleepers, you name it, making the place a no go area.

High railings round it and locked before it gets dark with a warden patrol would help
