Mayfield: The People’s Park

To mark the first birthday of Mayfield Park in Manchester we were commissioned to make a short film that showed how Mayfield really has become a Park for the People.

We spent two days talking to and interviewing visitors to the Park from dog walkers and joggers to the mums and pensioners, many of whom remember the site of old and have been blown away by the transformation.  It was heartening to hear so many positive testimonials and to appreciate quite how much the park has bought to the local community. From a derelict former industrial site to a vibrant public space, Mayfield really is an inspiring benchmark for parks of the future.  Here’s what they had to say…..

 

Happy birthday to Mayfield Park!
