We aim to be a 100% carbon-free green leisure space in Preston

The planet is facing a crisis – and Lancashire needs to rise to the challenge. Phoenix Park is focused on transforming the environmental landscape by decarbonising an established landfill site and creating a green space to be enjoyed by the local community. This will be one of the first green leisure facilities in the UK.

How we're going to achieve this

Helping build a sustainableEnvironment

Developing on an established landfill site, the park will run on completely renewable energy & technology, and be home to a recycling centre – with the aim to become 100% carbon-free.

Engaging your people inEducation

Providing modern, vocational education to some of the UK’s most hard to reach children and young people, including the provision of student accommodation and access to employment.

Supporting localCommunities

Phoenix Park will grow with the population, providing leisure activities and employment opportunities. Our comprehensive recycling programme will help to bring communities together, with a mutual goal.

Regeneration for access toLeisure

Accessible leisure activities will aim to promote health and well-being, providing everyone with the opportunity to try new interests and hobbies.

Explore the future of Phoenix Park

Our continued focus is the preservation and expansion of Preston’s green space. Building on the established landfill site, we hope to achieve a sophisticated leisure park, which will be 100% carbon-free, running on renewable energy and technology, with a number of activities available for the local community - and beyond.

The Ribble Steam Railway now extends through Phoenix Park along the River Ribble to Savick Brook. The railway is a standard gauge preserved railway. On event days a visit to the museum can be combined with a ride on a steam locomotive along the River Ribble. All bookings via Ribble Steam Railway and Museum www.ribblesteam.org.uk.

For those on the Coastal Access Walk along the River Ribble, there is a pedestrian bridge crossing the Savick Brook to enable walkers to continue down, or up, the Estuary. Visitors to the Park can also cross the brook to picnic on the other side before returning to the Park for their afternoon activities. BUT … remember to bring your rubbish back with you!
