Altrincham's revival has made it one of the country’s most exciting places to live. Its localised renaissance is considered the gold standard for town centre regeneration.
Awarded UK High Street of the Year in 2018, Altrincham encompasses an eclectic mix of top high street brands and independent retail offerings, including the Stamford Quarter shopping centre and recently redeveloped Market House to create an outstanding retail experience.
Now, the Stamford Quarter is about to become an even more valuable part of the Altrincham community with the addition of a “Not So Secret Garden”. This temporary community space will be a new social hub for the town and perfect for the summer months.
The Square will become a sustainable, green, suburban oasis with covered seating, a vibrant flower wall, festoon lighting and a solar-powered pergola creating a relaxing and pleasant atmosphere for Altrincham residents to enjoy.
Furthermore, there will be plenty of activities on offer. Live music shows will be held every Friday and a rolling programme of free fitness sessions, wellness workshops, foraging events, art workshops and special activities for children will make this a must-visit venue. Street food vendors will be in attendance on a weekly basis to round out the offer with an ever-changing food and drink menu.
The Not So Secret Garden will provide a huge boost to the centre of Altrincham and Stamford Square in particular, said Cllr James Wright, Trafford Council’s executive member for housing and regeneration.
“This beautiful new green and sustainable public space will be an oasis for shoppers, families and visitors and supports Trafford Council’s priorities to create successful and thriving places, being green and connected and having pride in our areas,” he said.
The Not So Secret Garden opened on Friday 4th June and will be yet another incredible community asset for Altrincham, a town which keeps getting better and better.
