Fairhaven Lake Restoration Project
Fylde council were awarded a substantial £1.48m pounds from the National Heritage Lottery Fund in December 2018. This amount was allocated to the restoration of the Fairhaven Lake and Gardens.
“the project aims to conserve and restore Fairhaven’s heritage buildings and landscape, improve the lake’s infrastructure and water quality, and provide an exciting new programme of events.”

As some may know Fairhaven Lake and Gardens is one of the UK’s first recreation marine lakes. It was constructed in the 19th century and hit its peak in the 1950s and 60s. Crowds used to line the banks, to watch the boat races and to take part in leisure activities.
The prime objective of this restoration project is to bring Fairhaven Lake and gardens back up to its former prime, offering a selection of water sports, and other new activities that will be open 7 days a week all year round for all ages to enjoy.
The project is now well underway, with an outdoor play area and a brilliant locally themed adventure golf course already complete.
Greenspan was proud to have been awarded the design and build of this brilliant Adventure Golf course. Working with Fylde Council has been a pleasure and we would like to give Charlie Richards, Project Officer at Fylde Council, a big thank you and well done. (The Full case study can be seen HERE).
The Fairhaven Lake Adventure Golf course had a soft opening on the 25th September 2020 with the Grand opening taking place on the 28th.
Greenspan Marketing Manager, Matt Young was privileged to be a part of the Grand, but socially distanced opening of the new Fairhaven Adventure Golf. The ribbon was cut by Councillor Angela Jacques, Mayor of Fylde at 12.00 mid-day with opening speech carried out by Councillor Cheryl Little.
