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.
