The council wants to redevelop the park to safeguard the future of leisure facilities in the town, as part of its sport and physical activity strategy, called Trafford Moving.

Trafford Council is now seeking public feedback on its plans for improvements to Partington Sports Village, approved by the local authority's executive in March.

The council successfully bid for £18m of funding from central government's Levelling Up Fund in January, which will fund the project.

The existing leisure centre and BMX track would be refurbished, as well as the changing facilities at Cross Lane Park next door.

There is also a ‘trim trail’ proposed – a path around the park to enhance access and support walking in the area.

To complement the improved facilities at Partington Sports Village, a 3G sports pitch would be created a 10-minute walk away at Broadoak School.

The public consultation will run until 13 June and can be accessed at

A planning application for the scheme will be submitted next year, with completion expected in March 2025.

Also in the borough's strategy is the combined £56m refurbishment of leisure centres serving Stretford, Altrincham, and Sale.

Cllr Jo Harding, Trafford Council's executive member for culture, leisure, and strategic partnerships, said: "We believe these new sports facilities will result in more people taking part in sporting and leisure activities.

"The development will also create jobs, provide training opportunities, lead to more investment in the area, and ties in with our corporate priorities of reducing health inequalities and supporting people out of poverty."

Before any more improvements are made,which are needed,more should be spent on repairing roads,pavements and grass cutting and thought given to manning the police station as the community has expanded greatly in the last few years

Sounds great although how do other residents of Trafford access the facilities – poor bus links, no tram or train and laughable road infrastructure that has kept Partington as a forgotten outpost of Trafford.

Partington needs a larger supermarket chain to open a store. We have tesco express and heron foods so choice is limited unless you wish to travel else where which if you don't drive is a nightmare. There use to be a good market I belive. It would be good if that came back too maybe using half the carpark on set days. Stalls selling fresh fruit and veg and a fresh meat van etc woukd be welcome and do well I’m sure. Many new houses are being built and Partington is expanding without the facilities to support the community. Therefore though this idea is great 18 m spent on better transport links and facilities would be much better and more welcome.
