Five For Fleetwood

Plans for the waterfront

 

Wyre Council was awarded £1.55m from the Coastal Communities Fund to help regenerate Fleetwood.

The money was split between a number of physical building projects along the seafront, an events programme to draw people to the area so they can see first-hand what's on offer, plus support, training and advice for tourism businesses so they are primed to take advantage of the new attractions on offer to visitors.

The building side of the programme has been dubbed Five For Fleetwood as the council concentrated on five zones (click on the links to find out more):

1. Euston Park 

Restoration of the park incorporating new footpaths, planting and cosmetic improvements to create more of a gateway to the promenade.

2. Skate Park

Provision of a much needed local facility particularly for teenagers.

3. Leisure Hub  

Stretching between the pier site and the sports centre, this space has been opened up even further with exciting new facilities for all ages added to create a real family atmosphere. Includes a splash zone -  Marine Splash, cafe and an extension of the current children's play area.

4. Marine Lake 

Cosmetic improvements to pathways and levels have been raised to make more of this beautiful attraction which might include pleasure boats and watersports. 

5. Ecology Park

An interactive way of highlighting the special flora and fauna around Rossall Point.

New beach huts have also been built on the sea front.
