The grounds of Ford Park are one giant natural play area with space to run around and lots of paths. The playground allows children to explore and enjoy the natural features of the grounds whilst parents can feel safe in the knowledge that all equipment has been specially designed to meet safety standards.
Combined with the Nature Trail and Orienteering Course it gives children big and small a great opportunity to interact with nature whilst having fun. There is also a Tree Trail -leaflets for all the trails can be purchased from the cafe for 50p or downloaded from this web site.
The mounds which surround the Natural Playground and the Butterfly Mound were all formed using waste from the Coach House Redevelopment Project which otherwise would have gone to landfill.
