Friends of Platt Fields

- - posted in Ancient Archives

The Friends of Platt Fields have produced a new and rather good website of information about the park. Although many old features of the park have been lost (I miss the little zoo) it seems to be having something of a renaissance, with lots of improvements and community activities going on. Manchester doesn’t have enough open spaces and Platt Fields is a very welcome expanse of green in an otherwise brown and grey city.

We enjoyed the Diwali festival that was held at Platt Fields last year, and I’m rather pleased that some of my photos have been used in the new site (they are all Creative Commons licensed).
