A slide in a children’s playground in Cross Lane Park was destroyed in a fire that happened on Sept 23 sometime during the evening.
The fire took hold and was intense for a time, it is thought kids set fire to the slide which ‘if true’ does not make any sense, since it was put there for them!
Some people were saying that “It is no wonder the kids have nothing in the area” or similar wording.
Partington has hough stood up to this new low, and although it does not look good, it will continue onward and upwards.
Cross Lane Park or as locals call it ‘Cross Lane Fields’ is a nice place to walk the dog, to play sports and most of the time to go and get some quiet.
It had a development in the past where a huge trim trail was placed on one side of the park, a five a side concrete football and basketball pitch with flood lights, and a skate park.
It has recently had a couple of new benches installed, which was a welcome to many residents.
