LATEST NEWS – There are proposals to build housing on Trafford College’s overflow car park and sports pitch and on the wildlife site north of the college’s sports pitch, which is owned by the Council. We are very concerned about the entire development and particularly on the Council’s site which was designated as a wildlife site years ago and is a very important part of the wildlife corridor along the brook. If you are concerned about these plans, please write to Cllr Denise Western with your comments. Her email address is: firstname.lastname@example.org
Welcome to the homepage for the Friends of Woodheys Park. Our role is to work alongside Trafford Council, One Trafford (AMEY) and other partners to ensure the park is maintained to the highest possible standards. We work tirelessly to improve the park’s infrastructure and to provide services that meet the needs of the local and wider community.
The park has always been popular and is visited by both young and old and the features and events within the park have attracted people from miles around.
It’s the perfect place to unwind, relax and enjoy the wonderful environment, wildlife and landscape. It’s a fantastic place to spend time with family and friends, enjoy the changing of the seasons, walk the dog, play on the swings or bring a picnic.
During the Summer months, the 18 hole Pitch and Putt course is open daily and offers a fun round of golf for the beginner as well as the more confident player and it’s excellent for honing your short game! For a small fee, clubs and golf balls can be loaned from the pavilion building.
The park is for everyone and it’s amazing what you’ll see if you look closely enough, from numerous species of fungi, a multitude of different types of birds, several varieties of butterflies and hoverflies to bats at dusk and these are just a few examples of many.
New volunteers are always welcome, so if you are interested and want to make a difference to this precious community green space, please complete the form on the ‘Contact Us’ page.
