£1m Master Plan for Brown’s Field

By on Tuesday, September 24, 2013

Prescot Town Council have revealed a £1-million master plan to redevelop the King George V Playing Fields, the green space on Wood Lane, known locally as Brown’s Field.

The proposed transformation will include on-site parking, changing facilities, two senior football pitches, two junior pitches and a full drainage system.

The makeover will also improve the existing toddler play area, create a footpath network and family seating area, and provide new entrance features.

The town council say the criteria for improvement are based on those at Eaton Street Park, which was awarded the coveted Green Flag status in July this year.

They also worked with community groups and park users to come up with ideas.

The overhaul will be done in stages and take several years, as Prescot Town Council have yet to secure funding. They are confident that the new pitch facilities will generate steady income to help pay with running costs for the park, however.

    Good that the money is being spent on Browns Field but can KMBC not see past football?
    Does Prescot need that many more football pitches if there’s two synthetic ones just opened at the Leisure Centre?

    Golf Driving Range, athletics track (grass), cricket pitch, tennis courts etc etc. Come on Knowsley get some other Sports down there too!

      Think about local residents who live next to the park with balls continually coming over the fences damaging people’s cars and gardens when the children come to get the balls back I really love the children playing but please put some higher fences up and move the ball area away from the houses [constant balls banging late into the night] think about the residents also
