Welcome to Worthington Park in Sale

Featured

A very warm welcome to the website of the Friends of Worthington Park in Sale.

We are a group established to work with Trafford Council, the local community and other partners to safeguard and improve the facilities in this local park.

We are proud to announce that, once again, the Park has retained the prestigeous Green Flag Award status.

We hope you find this site interesting and that you will visit often to find out what is happening in the Park. If you live locally, why not join us to help improve the Park. If you don’t want to get too involved, we would also welcome people who could help, even occasionally, at the events we organise in the Park e.g. help with erecting gazebos, staffing stalls etc.
Please download our Membership Form and email to  volunteer@worthingtonpark.org.uk if you are willing to join our database of helpers.

Painting the Gates

The three sets of main gates to Worthington Park were installed in 1953 to mark the Coronation of Queen Elizabeth ll.

To celebrate the Queen’s platinum Jubilee the gates have now been repainted. Many thanks to The Conservation Volunteers for their hard work with the paint brushes and to Amey for supplying the paint.
