Park and Gardens

Natural Playground

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.

Ford Park

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.

Support for Proposed Development

Thursday 8 January 2015

Proposed development to secure the future of Ford Park:Information for members, friends & neighbours Summary of the plans Ford Park Community Group wants to build eight houses (two of them single storey) at the entrance to the park, near to Ford Park Crescent. The houses will cover a relatively small area of the parkland and will not affect the use of Ford Park as a resource for the whole community. Crucially, the income from this development will secure the future of Ford Park as a public amenity. If this modest development does not go ahead, the charity will be forced to wind up and the land will have to be sold. If this happens, there is a real risk that Ford Park will end up being a neglected eyesore, or that the whole park will be acquired as a site for development. This further information explains the detail of the plans, how they will affect the park and the neighbourhood, and why Ford Park needs your support to ensure its future as a place residents and visitors can enjoy for many years to come.Read More
