Woodheys park has always been known locally as Pinkey park.  The name originated from pigs from neighbouring farmland often coming across into the park.

The farmland has gone but Pinkey park lives on in the form of the Pinkey park childrens play area within Woodheys park.  At the heart of the philosophy between Woodheys park and the friend’s group is that this park should be enjoyed by the whole community, young and old.  A real family park.

Woodheys Pitch and Putt is extremely popular and is open from Easter week through to September.  The course is a full 18 hole pitch and putt and the friends of Woodheys park have just applied(2008) for listing with the British Pitch and Putt association(BPPA) .

We are also looking at extending the opening times for the February half term next year and possibly into October at the end of the present season dependant on weather.  The golf course is a particularly nice area of the park which adds character and is used to attract a diverse demographic into the park.  With reductions offered for pre-bookings by clubs and social groups we actively encourage the local community to take full advantage of the course.

Woodheys woods area is split into two seperate eco-systems at the far end of the park between Pinkey childrens play area and Sinderland brook. These are split by the walkway to Sinderland Brook entrance at that part of the park which leads out towards Broadheath and De Quincey park. The woods themselves were created in the 1970’s on farmland and as such is a managed woodland area.

We have a woodland trail which snakes it’s way round and through one half of the woods. This wood is mainly willow and as such is marshland encouraging many different animals and birdlife into the park. Foxes, Squirrels and Barn owls are just some of the regular visitors spotted from our woodland trail on a regular basis.
