Kepple Lane Park Trust

The story of how a Garstang wasteland has been transformed into an award-winning park is both inspira­tional and enterprising. Kepple Lane Park Trust, a registered charity, was set up to develop the former brownfield site into a multi-use area for all the family.

The park, once Garstang's waste disposal site, is now a facility which boasts a toddler playground, a play ar­ea for five to nine-year-olds, two sensory gardens, an outdoor gym/trim trail, a community orchard, a community veg bed, a performance stage, a bog garden, tranquil seating areas, a youth shelter, a willow walk-way, picnic ta­bles, basketball hoop, football nets and more.

The project has the backing of Garstang Town Council, Garstang Youth Council, the Police, as well as local residents, with new support coming in all the time. With all this support, the Trust has attracted funding from an impressive list of sponsors
