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 email firstname.lastname@example.org with your contact details if you are willing to join our database of helpers.

Following the inspection in June 2018, it has now been announced that Worthington Park has once again been awarded a Green Flag. Congratulations to all those whose work contributed to gaining this prestigious award once more.
