Phoenix Park is a hidden gem nestled between the towns of Thurnscoe and Goldthorpe in South Yorkshire.
What was once the slagheap for Hickleton main colliery has been transformed into a wonderful community woodland for all to enjoy.
The site can be enjoyed whether you are walking, cycling or horse riding. There are a number of features to view including a climbing wall, calved farmyard animals, a maze, and an art gallery designed by a local youth group.
The site is also home to an abundance of wildlife that thrives on the diversity of habitats that are present on site.
