The new Woodford Park play area was officially unveiled by Woodley Town Mayor Councillor Janet Sartorel on Thursday. 

The opening of the park, which offers play experiences for children of all abilities, was attended by over 600 residents. 

The play area includes a double cableway, a sensory area, a wheelchair accessible play mound, an agility trail, a seven metre tall canopy trail and seven types of swings. There were also 100 free goody bags and free ice cream for the children, which was provided by Sir Whippy.

The park contains a Jubilee Tree planted for the Queen’s Canopy and a Jubilee Stones display to commemorate The Queen’s Platinum Jubilee. 

A sensory garden has also been planted at the site in memory of Councillor David Stares, who was instrumental in driving the project forward. 

The council said: “Thank you to everyone who attended the event. We hope you continue to enjoy the park for many years to come.”
