Play area

The Country Park has a large, well equipped play area with a medieval city – 8m tall, railway-themed play equipment, large sandpit area, plus the usual swings, slides and roundabouts.

The play area is a very popular facility and was refurbished in 2014 and will be again in 2023. We asked parents and kids what they wanted to see - which is why it's such a hit.


Our brand new skatepark is now open and ready to use. It is suitable for skateboards, bmxs and scooters and anybody from beginners to professionals will find some exciting and challenging features.

4X cycle track

The 4X cycle track in the woodland behind the skate park was completed in 2008. Great for beginners and pros, the track offers a challenge for everybody.

Then come and join in the fun. We usually meet on the 2nd Saturday of every month from 11 am to 1 pm, whatever the weather.
