woodend play area

The Town Council acquired Woodend open space in 2022 and quickly redeveloped the play park with an exciting new design and play equipment. The play area is aimed at 0-12 year olds and centres around an engaging nature theme that is both fun and educational. Pathways have been considerably improved for accessibility, small football goals installed to encourage younger players and additional picnic benches and sensory planting area complete the space. Visitors will also notice a native wildflower mound which assists biodiversity and helps to prevent children running into the path of the zip wire.

We are consulting residents on a draft Management Plan which can be read by clicking on the link below. This plan provides management objectives to encourage the sustainable use of the play area and improve the local environment for both people and wildlife.

You can read the Woodend Management Plan here.

Harpenden Town Council is keen to receive comments from residents regarding the Management Plan. Please contact : Alex Melson
