I spent many happy days fishing in the park lake, permit purchased from the town hall for 6 pence per year, old money, then the council in their wisdom decided to fill the pond in with all the dustbin refuse, and it never had the same appeal afterwards. The photo shows what was always called the flower park, it had a bandstand and was always well cared for. The park on the other side of Wigan Road was also called the Jubilee Park and even though both parks had lakes in them this was the only one I remember, as the other one was filled in before my time.
