About the area
Swinton town centre is the city's administrative centre, both Salford City Council and the police have their headquarters based there. This is also where you will find the local shopping precinct and the district's main library.
Swinton is also home to the only Victorian themed park in Salford with a bandstand. The park is also home to a thriving allotment association, ladies and gentleman bowling club, health walk club and various community sports groups. The park is supported by "The Friends of Victoria Park" group. This local group of residents and park users organise various events in the park, including summer activities, friendship days and very successful bandstand concerts. Due to the hard work of the group and agencies, the park has been successful in securing four Green Flags - an annually awarded national standard for parks and green spaces.
Transport links are good along the two main arterial routes to Manchester but will improve in the future as a result of the Salford West Strategy. There are three railway stations which could benefit from more frequent services and improved pedestrian and bus links.
There are three high schools and fourteen primary schools, as well as two youth centres.
There are two children's centres - Swinton and Moorside Children's Centre and Mossfield Children Centre.
Swinton and Pendlebury also has two youth centres which focus on providing activities and support for the youth of the area. The "Deans Youth Outdoors Activity Centre" also delivers The Duke of Edinburgh Award Scheme. Clifton Youth Centre, engages with local young people to identify and support local projects, youth issues and engagement.
