Highfield Country Park is a 70 acre area of open land that stretches to the east of Broom Avenue across to the back of Houldsworth Golf Course and over to the junction of Longford Road and Nelstrop Road.
Please visit the Events link for more information on up-and-coming events/meetings and more. Everyone from within and beyond the community is welcome.
The Friends of Highfield Country Park has recently received a CASH grant from Manchester City Council to install a raised board walk from the entrance of Bowler Street to the entrance of Broom Ave. This will enable access through an area that is presently very very muddy.
There has been another funding bid submitted to Ground Work to have an art feature, an information point, access restraints for motor bikes and improvments to the footpath from Bowler Street to Cringle Road. This funding opportunity will include community carving days on the art feature. We are through the first round of approval and are presently awaiting a mentor to carry us through the next process. Keep your fingers crossed.
We have been closely working with local artist Rachel Ramchurn to improve the entrance at the top of Bowler Street. This work has consisted of putting another funding bid in to carry out access restrictions for motor bikes, an information point, an art feature and community events through out the spring and summer months. We are presently waiting to hear back from this funder..
