The official opening of the Grosvenor Ground natural play area will take place on Saturday 13th November from 12 noon to 3pm. A range of fun activities are planned and the Lord Mayor will perform the official opening.

The new play area will provide exciting new recreation and activity space for the community and the equipment installed includes stone climbing boulders, swings, slides, monkey bars and climbing nets.

Cllr David Green, Executive Member for Regeneration and Economy and Chair of the Manningham Masterplan, said: "The residents in Manningham wanted a safe and secure place where young people could play and residents could relax and Grosvenor Ground will deliver exactly that."

Supporting environmental improvement works and bringing derelict land back into use for the community are key objectives of the Manningham Masterplan.
