Springhead Park

Springhead Park


Springhead Park is a well used, traditional public park, offering a variety of recreational activities within its 22 hectares of formal gardens and open, close–mown grassy slopes.

In 1996, 1.6 hectares of new woodland were planted with the help of local school children. Species used reflected what is commonly found growing locally. The intention was to strengthen the park's existing, but rather thin shelterbelts by creating a blend of open space, with formal avenues of trees and informal woodland. This is intended to screen the busy A654 road and the surrounding buildings. These young plantations are now establishing well and are already making a strong contribution to the landscape.
