More about Jean Stansfield Vicarage Park
The Jean Stansfield Park, also known as Vicarage Park, began its life back in 1926. It was created in memory of Jean, the daughter of Mr and Mrs S F Stansfield, who died tragically at the age of 10 years old.
Jean’s parents donated two acres of land to the people of Poulton, to create a park and recreational ground for local children.
The park’s an attractive approach to the market town from the one way system that delivers motorists to Poulton’s shops and car parks.
In the park you’ll find:
- a multi-use games area,
- children’s play area and a youth shelter,
- hard-standing multi use games area,
- plus a Crown Green bowling green.
The park today certainly still lives up to the Stansfields’ original hopes and intentions.
Friends of Jean Stansfield/Vicarage Park
Why don’t you join the Friends of Jean Stansfield/Vicarage Park? They work with Wyre Council to improve the facilities in the park and to encourage the involvement of the wider community in the management and use of it.
The Friends hold events and carry out fundraising to make sure that this valuable park in Poulton remains a good facility for the future. They’d also like the wider community to get involved in the management and use of the park.
A programme of planting has helped to make the park a more pleasant place to sit and relax and the multi-use games area provides a good range of exercise opportunities. The Friends also opened a new toddler play area at the park.
They’ve held a number of events in the park including a including A Picnic in the Park Day, Fun Days and the very popular Big Gig.
