£110k investment added to West Way after new play area opens to the public
West Way Sports Hub which opened in 2021 sees another £110,000 investment into area after Chorley Council and Astley Village Parish Council fund the creation of a fantastic play area facility.
A brand-new play area in between West Way and Chancery Road in Astley Village has opened by Chorley Councillors and pupils from Buckshaw Primary School following the original £2.7 million investment to build sports hub.
The new addition to the area sees brand-new state of the art equipment for ages 1 to 12 years including a base climb unit inspired by the athletic disciplines of parkour, free running, and Ninja Warrior style challenges.
Councillor Alistair Morwood, Cabinet Member for Planning and Development said: "I am delighted that we have now officially opened West Way play area for all residents and visitors to enjoy.
"The West Way Sports Hub is a well-used facility for people across Chorley and I know the play area will be utilised just as much.
"I encourage everyone to come down and try out these great facilities".
