West Way opening

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".
