Woodheys Park is only 1 of 11 parks in Trafford to be awarded the Green Flag. Join us to celebrate on Thursday 8th September 2022, 12.00 to 2.00 pm, tea, coffee and cakes for all!!
Why not join us for some gentle gardening …. On the last Friday of every month join volunteers from Stockdales, helping with work in the park. See the post under Events for more details.
The work with Stockdales at the end of March was very successful. We planted a short section of holly to create a hedge along a stretch of the chestnut palings that dogs/people are trying to push through. Also we tidied up a lot of fallen branches and general wind damage debris.
AMEY/Trafford will be starting work between the end of April and the beginning of May 2022 to improve the drainage along the eastern edge of the park. The area from the Link Rd gate to the woods has been flooding for a number of years making that section of the park unusable for months at a time as well as causing adjoining properties to flood.
A small group of residents and the Friends Group got together to ask AMEY/Trafford to include our park in the list of those parks with flooding issues and, as a result, money from the capital budget was allocated to do improvement work on our park.
As yet we don’t know how long the work will take or what the effect on access will be but we’re sure any temporary disruption will be worthwhile.
Warning about Avian Flu
Avian flu is present in the bird community. Take care if you see injured or dead birds. See the Public Information notice below.
January 10th 2022.
Visitors may notice that several of the swings in the Children’s Play area have been removed. This is for safety repairs, after an issue was identified in other Trafford parks.
A FREE CHRISTMAS HOT DRINKS EVENT WAS HELD ON THURSDAY, 2ND DECEMBER
Hot drinks on a cold Winter’s day, what could be better? Visitors to Woodheys Park joined us in the Pavilion for a lovely cuppa, mince pie, cake, conversation and a good laugh. Watch this space for events coming up in 2022.
