Liberty Fun Park Kicks off Swans' Season

Liberty Fun Park Kicks off Swans' Season
Thursday 16 Jul 2009 [12:47]
 
The Liberty Stadium's North car park has been transformed into a fairground for the past few days, with bumper crowds making the most of one of Wales' most successful traveling Fun Parks, despite the wet weather.

The Fun Park is part of the Stadium's first ever Family Fun Day, which is taking place this Saturday. The day will also include Swansea City Football Club's first friendly of the season against FC Twente and a full set by one of Swansea's most popular music groups, Fat Barry's Soul band, which will take place immediately after the game.

Due to the expected crowds on Saturday, Stadium management are warning fans to make sure they plan their route to the Stadium in advance, whether they are looking to attend the game, experience the fairground, or enjoy the music. Due to the Family Fun Day, there is no match day car parking available at the stadium. Supporters in cars are advised to park in the signposted Park and Ride car park off Junction 45 of the M4 at a cost of £5 per vehicle, or at the Park and Walk facility opposite the Stadium.

For those traveling by bus, the Quadrant Bus and Coach Station isapproximately 2.5miles from the Stadium. Local bus services - routes 4 and 4a, which travel via the train station - and taxis are available from The Quadrant to the Stadium.

Matthew Daniel, Stadium Commercial Manager, said:

"We have worked closely with the Swans, as well as outside organisations such as supporters groups, South Wales Police and the City and County of Swansea to ensure that our Travel Plan for the Stadium's first Family Fun Day meets demand, whilst taking into account what is happening elsewhere in the city.

"On this occasion, Premier Club members, who normally use the Stadium's car park will be using the Park and Walk facility, so it is likely that this area is going to be very busy. I would recommend that people try and utilise the Swansea Vale Park and Ride at Junction 45 wherever possible.

"With the support and co-operation of all those attending the match, access to and from the stadium can be a very smooth process. That is why we want fans to be aware of, and take full advantage of, the options available to them."

The fair will open on midday on Saturday and Sunday is its last day of operation.
