Woodley Town Council is delighted to announce the long awaited ‘destination’ play area project for Woodford Park, which will be delivered in 2022.
Following a successful public consultation with over 700 responses, Proludic were selected from seven tendering contractors to deliver this exciting project.
The new play area will replace the old one to the rear of the Oakwood Centre. It has been designed specifically with ‘inclusivity’ in mind, and will offer a stimulating, exciting play experience for children of all abilities.
It will include 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. Please see the artist’s impression of the design for more information.
This first class play area is being funded from £200,000 developers’ contributions via Wokingham Borough Council, with £57,000 additional funding from Woodley Town Council.
We’ll be updating you soon with a date for the work to start and of course, the grand opening date.
The old, existing play area will be closed from today, 10th January, in preparation for removal of the old equipment, fencing and tarmac. The play area near the leisure centre will remain open.
