Woodland Parkland Works Update

Stage 2 of the Woodland Park Upgrade will begin on 10 February 2020 and go on for approximately 6 months.

This will mean that the playground will be fenced off and closed during this time.

Paths, irrigation channels and plantings will also be installed through the parkland.

Due to these works we strongly suggest you view the area before booking this site to insure the location will meet your needs. No refunds will be given after an event due to site works.

For more details of works please visit our Woodlands Park works page.
