Driving on the Park:

Please note that for the safety of everyone on the park the speed limit is 5mph. You will see that there are maximum speed limit signs in place; the park roads carry the same legal restrictions as roads and highways in the UK. So please ensure that you keep to the speed limits and no driving under the influence of drugs and alcohol. Approach speed humps slowly t prevent you from causing any damage to your vehicle. Please park your vehicle within the marked parking bays so that everyone can find a space.

 

The Pond:

At the entrance to the park you will see our pond which is home to many resident goldfish, water boatmen, frogs and toads. You may also spot dragonflies and the occasional Heron to. It is a haven for wildlife and is teeming with all manner of pond dwelling wildlife. But ponds can be dangerous for children and dogs alike. So please ensure your children are aware of the dangers and are accompanied by an adult by the pond at all times.

 

DVD Library:

The main reception has a selection of DVD’s which you are more than welcome to borrow during you stay.

Bee & Bug Insect Hotels:

Woodlands Park is extremely proud to be a David Bellamy Gold Conservation Award park. Our trees and shrubs planted across the park have been carefully chosen to support our native wildlife, in the very important job of pollination. You will also discover Bee & Bug Insect Hotels across the park. These little accommodation units give a much needed home to all manner of creepy crawlies and buzzing beasties. Be sure to look out for them on your next exploration of our beautiful grounds.
