Calls for community input on upcoming Acacia Park upgrade

Acacia Park in Prestons will soon be undergoing a significant transformation and local residents are invited to have their say on the planned improvements.

Liverpool City Council Mayor Wendy Waller is encouraging members of the community to share their feedback relating to the Draft Concept Plan for Acacia Park, which is currently on Public Exhibition.

“The proposed upgrades will see Acacia Park transform from an empty green field to a quality recreation space. It will revitalise and modernise the park by providing a place for community members of all ages to gather, connect and enjoy the location and facilities,” Mayor Waller said.

“This phase of the community consultation will ensure that all residents have the opportunity to tell us if there are any additional recreation improvements they would like to see within the park.”

The proposed design for Acacia Park will see the space come to life with the addition of a new children’s playground along with a picnic setting, seating and shelter.
