There are masses of opportunities for playing in the woods - trees, logs, small streams, open spaces, playgrounds! Come and use your imagination and initiative to have heaps of fun.
The Play Wood
Discover a place where trees rule our world at Play Wood.
Children can enjoy climbing on foresters’ ‘machinery’, the Pirate Ship and many other items. Two new pieces of accessible play equipment, a wheelspin and nest swing, have been installed to enable children with disabilities to enjoy the playground.
For even more adventure on a forestry theme visit our 3D maze, based on the old forester’s sawmill.
Its ladders, passages and winding corridors are spread over 4 floors. Views over the forest and a little playhouse greet you at the top.
Timberline is ideal for older children. It offers a circuit of different challenges to overcome, from climbing wall to scramble net, and balancing beam to tunnel ... but can you make it to the end of the assault course without falling off?
Journey further into the forest and you will be greeted by an amazing array of forest creatures.
Climb a spiral staircase inside a tree trunk, home of the woodpecker; run up an owl's back and see the forest through his eyes, find a bridge guarded by snakes and climb over a bat and moth.
The final spot on the Habitat Trail is currently being redeveloped. A new piece of play equipment will be installed over the next few weeks.
