Woodheys Park was opened in the early 1970’s. The site was formally used as farmland and is still known as ‘Pinky Park’ because pigs from a field across the brook frequently strayed into the park.
The park is approximately 7.5 hectares in size and consists of a grass area and a woodland area. It also boasts well-maintained facilities such as:
18 Hole Pitch and Putt – open from April to end September everyday from 10.00 am (last tee off is 2 hours before the park closes. There is a small fee for the hire of clubs and golf balls, arranged from the pavilion building. Woodheys Park is currently the only park in Trafford with a fully operational pitch and putt course.
Children’s play area
Football posts and 5 a-side football area
Adjacent to the children’s play area are several fruit trees. The woodland at the bottom of the park is a protected area, acting as a nature reserve and important wildlife corridor. It also has some ancient ditches and hedges.
The park has a friends group “Friends of Woodheys Park” (FoWP) formed in 2001 which is still going strong.
