Childhood dreams come true with opening of new Morecambe play area

John Freeman
An afternoon of fun and games will mark the official opening of a new family play and recreation area in Morecambe next week.

Lancaster City Council has worked with the local community to design the new Claypitts play area between Charles Street and Out Moss Lane.

Now, years of hard work will pay off when it officially opens with a family fun afternoon on Thursday 16th August from 5 to 7.00pm.

As well as the chance to try out the new play equipment, there will be free refreshments (while stocks last), face painting, balloon modelling and a children’s entertainer.

“The design for the Claypitts play area has been a real team effort between the council and local people, showing how we can all work together to take pride in our communities," notes Councillor David Smith, Lancaster City Council’s cabinet member with responsibility for Environmental Services.

“Having visited the Claypitts play area several times recently I've seen that it is already proving popular and I’m it sure it will quickly become a popular community resource for all.”

The Claypitts play area includes play areas for both toddlers and older children and a multi-use games area.
