Trafford Council is inviting public views on a masterplan for the park in Stretford with Aecom, City of Trees and community groups on board ahead of a potential bid for National Lottery funding.
Longford Park is one the borough’s largest, and is associated with former owner and resident, industrialist John Rylands.
The council is looking to draw up the masterplan for improvements and changes to the park, with the aim of bidding for National Lottery Heritage funding later this year.
Changes could include adding to the park’s heritage offering by improving existing heritage buildings, while sports facilities could also be modernised.
A drop-in event is due to take place on Tuesday 5 March, running between 4pm and 7pm at the Longfords Suite, part of the Trafford Athletics Stadium complex, where members of the public can offer their views over the park’s future.
Cllr Steve Adshead, Trafford Council’s executive member for environment, air quality and climate change, said: “Longford Park is a major asset for Stretford and Trafford in terms of its open space and environmental role, but also in terms of local history, culture, health and wellbeing, place shaping, play, sport and leisure.
“It is therefore important that as many people as possible get involved with this project so that we can develop a really strong plan and bid.”
