A new park has been opened in Manchester city centre and is the first green space in the centre for over one hundred years.
Mayfield Park on the old industrial site next to Freight Island opened to the public on September 22 and is the first park to be unveiled in the city centre for over a century.
Duncan Paybody, a Landscape Architect involved in the development of the park said: “As a city centre, it really hasn’t got a massive amount of green spaces.
“A lot more people live in the city centre and it’s not just a place to come and work, it’s a place to come and live and green spaces are really important to that.
“Hopefully it forms an important part of improving people’s mental health and escaping the busyness of a city centre.”
