Love Parks – Woodford Park play area, Queen’s Green Canopy & sensory garden

We are delighted to be taking part in Keep Britain Tidy’s #LoveParks campaign. Today we celebrate the new Woodford Park play area, the Queen’s Green Canopy and the sensory garden, which is dedicated to the late Cllr David Stares.

The new play area was officially opened in June this year by the Woodley Town Mayor and was designed specifically with inclusivity in mind. It includes a double cableway, a sensory area, a wheelchair accessible play mound, an agility trail, a 7m tall canopy trail, seven types of swings and much more.

We have also received a certificate offsetting our carbon footprint in the making and installation of the park, which is in line with our climate change policy to be carbon neutral by 2030. 

Cllr David Stares was chairman of the Leisure Services Committee when the new play area was first suggested and was at the forefront of driving the project forward. The sensory garden was planted in his memory and a plaque commemorating Cllr Stares was unveiled today by the Woodley Town Mayor, Cllr Janet Sartorel.

The play area also contains our Jubilee Tree planted for the Queen’s Canopy and Jubilee Stones display decorated by local children to commemorate The Queen’s Platinum Jubilee.

We are delighted that this play area is now always full of the sound of laughter from children enjoying the equipment.
