The gardens have been refurbished to re-create the atmosphere of the garden's 1930s heyday. There is a dramatic outdoor performance area that will play host to events from 2012 and beyond. A new water fountain play feature has been installed so that children can enjoy playing in the gardens.
The structure will serve as a beacon and destination along the Wyre coastal trail linking Cleveleys and Fleetwood. There will be two viewing platforms for birdwatching and providing a fantastic view of the Fylde Coast, the Irish Sea and across Morecambe Bay to the Lakleland fells.
The view from the top deck will also be available via a screen on the ground floor for anyone not wanting to make the climb to the top.
Wyre's mythical past has been brought to life in a locally inspired storybook -
The Sea Swallow
The beautifully illustrated book draws on the history and folklore of the area such as the Lune Deep and the Wyre Light lighthouse. The book is on sale at Tourist Information Centres and on-line from Amazon.
